Infrastructure
general
174120Photo #174120The digger is busy where there should be a section of the brook south of the culvert near the bottom of the bridge ramp. I was told that the brook would be dug out when the patch in the foreground (ie the Trail) is 'done'. Judging by the quantity of materials on site, it would then be lined with more gabions, so plenty more still to do.Other:

Infrastructure

173883Photo #173883Towpath upgrade finished and open. Interesting choice of radii at the junction with the link to Fen Road - perhaps determined more by land availability than attention to likely traffic patterns and desire lines?Other:
Infrastructure
general
173722Photo #173722There are now lots of these 'big bollards' alongside the path on the north Common. They're about 1.5m high, and generally about 0.2 - 0.3m outside the edge of the path.

Some are sensibly located to warn spectators leaving the stadium that they are joining a cycle route.
