Progress at north side of Chisholm Trail underpass location

Progress at south side of Chisholm Trail underpass location

The big (iron?) pipe that was below the footway, and not supported by the scaffolding, has gone. Chisholm Trail underpass site.

Bank largely gone where Chisholm Trail underpass will emerge on south side of Newmarket Road

Waterproofing of precast sections, and significant digging, in progress on south side of Chisholm Trail underpass.

Chisholm Trail river bridge, north compound. Strong site fence has gone while they work on the edge of the site - being replaced by Heras fencing. Good progress too on building up the ramp to the bridge.

North-side precast sections being waterproofed: Chisholm Trail underpass

'Easy' utilities suspended and undercut, but water main (?) still not addressed: Chisholm Trail underpass works on south side of Newmarket Road

Utilities suspended and undercut: Chisholm Trail underpass works on north side of Newmarket Road

Progress on groundwork alongside southern end of Chisholm Trail river bridge

When the culvert is installed and the sheet piles removed, there is still plenty of work to do to link the end of the jetty to the reinstated riverside path.

Progress on groundworks around the northern end of the Chisholm Trail river bridge.

The sheet-pile enclosure where we think a culvert is being installed for NCN51 to cross the re-aligned Brook. Safety fence, person/equipment lift, and simple bucket etc crane visible - but no way to see progress within.

Scaffolding to support utilities above works on the Chisholm Trail underpass. Fixtures will be concreted into the four holes in the foreground to make sure that nothing moves while the digging is underway.

Scaffolding will support utilities when the ground underneath is dug out for the Chisholm Trail underpass.

Good progress on groundwork for the Chisholm Trail approach to the north side of the Newmarket Road underpass.

Utilities under the south-side footway, to be negotiated by the Chisholm Trail underpass at Newmarket Road

I think the vehicle at right of shot is on the approach ramp to the Chisholm Trail river bridge - giving an idea of progress so far.

I guess these are piles stabilising the approach ramp to the south side of the Chisholm Trail river bridge

(Presumably) survey marks for the location of the Chisholm Trail bridge over the brook and onto Coldham's Common

Utilities - including a big drain pipe? - revealed under the south side footway at the site of the Chisholm Trail underpass

Groundwork for the Chisholm Trail is getting closer at the underpass site

This looks like it will be the route between the towpath and bridge.

For the footings of stair or ramp to north side of Chisholm Trail river bridge?

Progress on the south side approach ramp to the Chisholm Trail river bridge?

A (presumably permanent) fender keeps boats away from the NCN51 jetty under rail and Trail bridges, but the (presumably temporary) cones remain.

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

Progress on the ramp that will connect the Chisholm Trail with the north side of Newmarket Road

Remains, I think, of the footway - not material for the Chisholm Trail underpass

Precast sections for the sides of the approaches to the Chisholm Trail underpass

Preparations on the south side of Newmarket Road for the Chisholm Trail underpass. The footway diversion is very narrow, and some cyclists are using the roadway.

The full set (?) of precast sections for the sides of the Chisholm Trail underpass at Newmarket Road.

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.

Digger plus archeologist (?) on site of Chisholm Trail underpass at Newmarket Road.

Preparing for the underpass of Newmarket Road near the Leper Chapel.

Coldham’s Common work has started on the Chisholm Trail.

Looks like evidence of refreshed survey work for alignment of Chisholm Trail at north side of the underpass

At left of shot, two cones and some earthwork which seem to mark the alignment of the south end of the Chisholm Trail underpass Some of the concrete casts are marked with things like NW1 which presumably indicate their placement within ... [more]

Assumed to be preparations for the Chisholm Trail underpass at Newmarket Road

Now (02/01/21) fewer culvert components in the compound - but not yet confirmed where the others have gone

Unidentifed concrete components on the cafe/underpass site.

Large & robust sections cast on cafe/underpass site and then moved aside. For the underpass???

Link under construction to the new Chisholm Trail bridge to Chesterton and Cambridge North station.

Chisholm Trail construction site

It's coming! - the Chisholm Trail

Dropped kerb at Barnwell Meadow where Chisholm Trail will meet Newmarket Road. Significant remaining upstand renders it dangerous for oblique approach.

New dropped kerb at Barnwell Meadow where the Chisholm Trail will meet Newmarket Road. It's not even close to 'flush', and potentially very dangerous for any oblique approach from the on-road painted cycle lane.

Signs of surfacing work on the new ncn51 jetty below rail and Trail bridges

Still a lot of bits of crane and counterweight on site after installation of Chisholm Trail river bridge

As well as the bearing and sliders previously identified, the Chisholm Trail river bridge appears also to rest - at least for the moment - on a pair of adjustable jacks at each end.

It seems to be quite random whether the infill triangles on the Chisholm Trail river bridge have 2, 3, or 4 fastenings.

Large crane extensively dismantled for transport after installing Chisholm Trail river bridge

Pillbox next to Chisholm Trail river bridge

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

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.

It is now clear, I think, that the mysterious exposed re-bar on the abutments is to do with interfacing the approach ramp with the bridge surface.

Work in the north compound on Tue 10/11/20 is all to do with shipping out the parts of the big crane, but some lucky chaps have already walked on the new Chisholm Trail river bridge.

The Abbey-Chesterton Bridge on Ditton Meadows.

The elegance of the Abbey Chesterton Bridge on the Chisholm Trail emerges from the engineering works.

The Abbey Chesterton Bridge in situ at last. There were lots of people walking around today on Stourbridge Common and Ditton Meadows - exercising in the mild November air and many of them had come to look at the bridge and the cranes.

The newly sited Abbey-Chesterton Bridge - alongside the railway bridge. The photo also shows the set of points, a.k.a.turnout, which southbound (towards the camera) trains use to switch tracks after leaving Cambridge North station.

Ta-da! https://t.co/cVhReDPuTU

The Abbey-Chesterton bridge in-situ.

Abbey-Chesterton bridge craning into place. At this moment the engineers were waiting for the all-clear from Network Rail to confirm that the bridge could be moved into place as it is quite close to their bridge. I think power to the ove ... [more]

Abbey-Chesterton Bridge - airborne

Building work in progress on the Barnwell cafe site that is also the location of the Chisholm Trail underpass. Subsequently believed to be for the underpass, not for the cafe building.

New scaffolding, presumably for access to the expansion bearing as the Chisholm Trail river bridge is installed.
