Chisholm Trail river bridge showing mounting blocks and first of the thermal expansion bearings.

Chisholm Trail river bridge expansion bearing closeup.

The three load-bearing blocks, and how they relate to the curved sides, of the Chisholm Trail river bridge.

Western end jetty/bank transition looks 'ready'.

Some wonderfully adroit sculpture provides handy cycle parking here in Dover for this cyclist who's about to swim over the channel to France (not shown). https://allpoetry.com/A-Shropshire-Lad #86175

Posts set into river bed - line of reinstated river bank?

A bit more progress on the southern bridge abutment

Cyclists coming off the Arran ferry at Ardrossan, while the next batch waits to board.

You're not going to miss the cycle space in this double-deck regional train in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, are you? And I like that it specifies how many cycles it can take.

Large timber platform adjacent to Chisholm Trail bridge abutment

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

Cycle space on an Øresund train, crossing the fixed link between Denmark and Sweden.

Small sign for bus gate closure at eastern end of Mill Road bridge

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

Curved sections - perhaps formers to go with shuttering? - in the compound.

28/09/20 Shuttering being erected for more concrete at the bridge approach

Bus lane (introduced summer 2020) on the A1307 (in the south-easterly direction only). This starts just north of the junction with High Street, Babraham (where the photo was taken) and continues as far as the Four Wentways roundabout. T ... [more]

It’s a sunny evening in Gosport’s Falklands Gardens as a cyclist arrives after a ride down ncn 224 from Alton. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HMS_Coventry_(D118)

Chisholm Trail now has asphalt surface at Barnwell Meadow.

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.

A view from the old platform of Droxford Station where ncn 224 is descending from the South Downs along the Meon Valley trail and heading for the coast at Portsmouth.

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

Lots of waterproof membrane embedded in the brook fill??

Newly spotted in the compound, an 'asphalt paver'

Dead end signs now in place at experimental modal filters. Just missing an 'Except Cycles' sign although the cycling direction sign is almost as good.

The obvious route for NCN route 51 out of Harwich

The obvious route for NCN route 51 out of Harwich

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, not digging a hole: material going from the heap and into the hole beyond it. More prep for embankment?

Somewhere in there, I think, is the part of the brook that must be realigned to make room for the embankment towards the Chisholm Trail river bridge

Cycling this very long downhill stretch of the Tarka trail surely fills a poor heart with delight. Rest here and enjoy the tranquillity with people of Pencleave Wood. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x9QJBFt9WdA

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

Roundabout and sign for NCN route 5, Oxford

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.

I don't know if it's connected to Covid-19, but this cycle parking area at St Mary's School has been cleared out.

A Hong Kong style floating restaurant

Cafe / Underpass site work in progress

Plenty of work in progress at the Cafe / Underpass site at Newmarket Road

Good large-radius sweeping curves of the Chisholm Trail on the edge of Ditton Meadows

Thought to be sections for a culvert to contain the stream - in Chisholm Trail compound

Culvert components parked within the Trail compound

There's nothing yet inside the north-side concrete vee: still plenty of work to do there

Brickwork at eastern end of jetty

I hadn't previously noticed the wartime pillbox, now ready to guard two bridges not one

Top round-section handrail beginning to be added

Brickwork now done at western end of jetty

Avenue of stars - but no bikes

Cholmondeley Avenue to A56 Timperley . A modal filter. Could do with some TLC and resurfacing. Useful to avoid the busy traffic lights A56/Park Road which have very little room to filter and are impossible for the nervous person on a bike

This modal filter was installed in Bateman Street in the past few days to "create more space for pedestrians and cyclists in response to Covid-19".

A clearer view now of the eastern end of the new jetty, and the work still to be done.

Full sweep of jetty as seen from the east

Tactile/textured paving ready and waiting for a home. Strange sequence of processes.

The Diversion Route agreed by planners is back through Northwick and onto Route 41

Full sweep of new jetty below rail and (in due course) Trail bridges

Jetty sections 5, 6, & 7 in place, and with some handrail fitted, at Chisholm Trail river crossing

Jetty sections 5, 6 & 7

Sections 5, 6 & 7 of jetty under rail and Chisholm Trail river bridges now installed

Quite a lot of groundwork still to do to mate eastern end of new jetty with path on the bank

Pontoon for jetty installation at Chisholm Trail river crossing - preparing for overnight rail closure and work next to the rail bridge

Pontoon, crane, and jetty section at Chisholm Trail river bridge - ready to install final three jetty sections

Urmston in Trafford near Manchester Chassen Road mini roundabout junction with Flixton Road widens for cycle to rejoin but is blocked forcing cycles into path of following motors

More jetty handrails fitted

Chisholm Trail groundworks reach space next to Leper Chapel

Jetty section under railway bridge appears to offer decent headroom

Removing the brackets which enabled installation of jetty section 4 under the railway bridge

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

Not a cycle route, not a cycle stand, but people do ride through here.

Decorative bridge at Paddington Basin - not a cycle route.

New cattle grid replacing one which was a hazard to cycle over as bars were bent down.

Chisholm Trail river bridge painted, sides infilled, ready for installation

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