In 2003 Lindesnes municipality started to examine the possibilities to build a new canal beside the old one. The aim was to build a safe way mainly for small fishing- and pleasureboats. They wanted to start the works in 2004 or maybe 2005, but that had to wait until spring 2006. Hopefully the new canal will be ready for use in summer 2007.
