Its difficult to see from the map, but it does seem in parts to follow the route of the Canal du Nord , do you know if it will run in parallel or are they actually widening the existing canal in places ?

No idea I'm afraid Stuart. I've only just started looking into it. There's a number of documents online pertaining to the program but my French isn't that hot I'm afraid.

There's quite a bit online about it with a bit of judicious googling.. Here's an overview map
I'm particularly interested in it's effect on the canal crossing between Villers Carbonnel and Brie where my great-uncle won a MM on 29 Aug 18 with the 31st Bn AIF. It appears the new canal duplicates the current Canal du Nord slightly to it's west. Question is then will the current canal remain operational?

This project has raised its ugly head again. The French parliament gave the green light last month for a relaunch, with work to start in 2017 and completion by 2023. You have been warned.

All previous links w/r to the geography of the canal do not work anymore. Does someone know the exact route of the canal please?
