The Lapal Canal is the name given to the section of the Birmingham Canal Navigations Dudley No. 2 Canal which is under restoration. It will run from Hawne Basin, at the current limit of navigation on the Dudley No. 2 Canal to Selly Oak where it meets the Worcester & Birmingham Canal.
That's the orange section on this map, which is much easier to say.
It will bypass the collapsed Lapal Tunnel with a new route over the top of the hill. The proposed route will climb from Hawne Basin through ten locks, arranged in four staircases and descend through a further ten locks arranged as four individual locks and two staircases.
