Ducks Officially Have Their Own Duck Lanes Near London’s Canal Walkways

Ducks Officially Have Their Own Duck Lanes Near London’s Canal Walkways

There is nothing more annoying than trying to push through the crowds on a busy pavement.

Ducks apparently share the pain too, it appears, and are getting special ‘duck lanes’ to help the birds who have sought the city waterway life, to harmoniously travel along the river beds alongside humans.

The quirky initiative is being installed by Canal & River Trust alongside numerous walkways in London, Birmingham and Manchester, so the birds get their own special lane to waddle down.

Ducks apparently share the pain too, it appears, and are getting special 'duck lanes' to help the birds who have sought the city waterway life, to harmoniously travel along the river beds alongside humans.

The winged waddlers are getting their own lane to highlight the issue of safety for pedestrians, cyclists and animals sharing the same pathway

The temporary spray-painted sections are designed as a light-hearted way to highlight the narrowness of the lanes, and to promote consideration of the feathered friends.

It is hoped by raising awareness for cyclists, walkers and birds safely sharing the restrictive pathways, the animals will feel comfortable to patter up and down the banks as they please.

The overly narrow lane, with a spray painted duck is intended to humorously highlight the fact it would be impractical to lane all users, and sharing must take place for all to enjoy the city canals.

The campaign was created by the Canal & River Trust which is a charity responsible for maintaining more than 2,000 miles of inland waterways in England and Wales
