Unexpected reason for lack of progress on the NCN51 jetty under rail and Trail bridges

Preparation for the Chisholm Trail underpass at Newmarket Road, with the further-diverted NCN51 route alongside

NCN51 diversion further diverted by preparations for Chisholm Trail underpass. Care needed eastbound where the new alignment mounts the unsatisfactory dropped kerb.

Preparations for Chisholm Trail underpass involve diversion of the temporary NCN51 route. Narrow, but with a 'passing place' part way along.

More sheet piling for work on river bank or culvert, and ultimately ncn51

Restriction on the ncn51 diversion

New sheet piling now encloses quite a big area, though whether it's the location of the culvert for ncn51 to cross the brook is still not clear.

Renewed sheet piling to facilitate culvert for ncn51 to cross the brook near the eastern end of the new jetty

Working on the sheet piling that will facilitate the installation of a culvert for ncn51 to cross the realigned brook.

NCN51, Felixstowe

Courteous cycling permitted along Felixstowe promenade, as confirmed by these bin stickers.

Large timber platform adjacent to Chisholm Trail bridge abutment

Largest yet (I think) timber platform on south bank adjacent to Chisholm Trail bridge abutment

River bank built up, rolled flat, and immediately covered with chunky timber sections

Good progress on branch line alignment of ncn51-Trail link

river bank was being built up and rolled flat - 7 October

Neat cut in the path isn't new - it was already visible in July, maybe earlier - but it's a bit more noticeable now. I don't think it's the location of the old cattlegrid - that was at the end of the boardwalk.

Something has been built, and covered in plastic sheet, behind the row of piles - but it's not one of the 8 culvert sections which are still waiting in the compound.

Progress on the ncn51-Trail link

Changes to the row of piles, but no obvious change to the timber platform.

Jetty handrails seem to be finished, except for linking to bridge abutments.

Western end of jetty looking more nearly finished.

Chunky timber (?) sections occupying a plausible location for a culvert for realigned brook under ncn51

Taller piles, bigger hole, beside eastern end of jetty.

Taller piles, and the hole they contain is beginning to look big enough for a culvert on the new brook alignment. Meanwhile, detailed (cosmetic?) brickwork at the end of the jetty.

No sign at Dovercourt station at the start of the route to Harwich International ferry terminal

NCN route 51 and EuroVelo routes 2 and 12 southwest from Harwich

Supposedly cycling isn't allowed on the ramp down to NCN route 51 along the promenade

Cyclists towards Harwich keep left here; cyclists out of Harwich can go to the right then cut back along the promenade - or contiue behind the camera.

There's a short stretch of shared-use footway to link from Cliff Park to Barrack Lane avoiding the B1352.

It's not obvious in this direction, but there's a short stretch of shared-use footway to link from Barrack Lane to Cliff Park avoiding the B1352.

The obvious route for NCN route 51 out of Harwich

Cyclists on NCN route 51 are supposed to dismount, turn very sharply right and walk down to the road. When there's an obvious route straight ahead (ie behind the camera).

Poor surface on NCN route 51 at Harwich Maritime Museum

Classic Sustrans - there's a good route to the right, but cycles have to take the bumpy narrow path to the left.

It's definitely a foot and bicycle ferry from Harwich to Shotley and Felixstowe.

15/09/20 - a bit more progress on ground level for eastern landfall of jetty?

Riverbank already cut on 15/08/20 - just for pontoon, or preparation for ncn51 itself?

Piles sunk into riverbed, and excavation behind them being pumped out.

Fresh excavation of river bank where ncn51 jetty will rejoin - and lots of fresh material ready to be put somewhere.

Is the brook between rail and Trail now partly filled in? Look through&beyond the railings.

Brickwork at eastern end of jetty

Brackets welded to pontoon enabled installation of jetty section under railway bridge without use of crane

First 3 jetty sections with handrails fitted

Jetty handrail uprights, usefully splayed for more handlebar clearance
