The National Capital Commission board of directors has approved spending $1.3 million to install 2.2 kilometres of railing along the Rideau Canal, from Dow's Lake to Hog's Back Falls.

The railing is expected to be installed in the fall of this year.

Currently there's only a concrete curb separating that section of the canal from the adjacent pathway. In the spring of 2015, two cyclists fell over the curb and into the canal.
