Entrance to Chisholm Trail from Newmarket Road. Q: What signage is there here to suggest this route is prohibited for motor vehicles? A: All I can see here are a shared-use cycleway sign behind the fencing on the left.

An event to mark the end of the Our Place In Space art installation.

A samba band plays at the end of a family friendly bike ride from Midsummer Common to the Abbey Chesterton bridge.

Temporary (July-August 2022) obstruction on the Chisholm Trail

Clara Rackham Street's connection to Cromwell Road should be OK for Chisholm Trail phase 2 if the proposed connection further south gets silly chicanes etc.

Expected to be part of Chisholm Trail phase 2

Doesn't seem to be much chance there of a connection between Chisholm Trail and Sedgwick Street

Expected to be part of Chisholm Trail phase 2 The Trail turns left towards Cavendish Place beyond the Heras fence

Expected to be part of Chisholm Trail phase 2 The Trail turns right in front of the houses here

The only sign of a possible alternative connection between Chisholm Trail and Sedgwick Street - beyond the fence at the end

Tiny kerb between 'road' and 'path' is very difficult to spot, and very bad for oblique approach.

Expected to be part of Chisholm Trail phase 2

Expected to be part of Chisholm Trail phase 2 Wonder what will appear instead of this, to prevent vehicle through-route?

Expected to be part of Chisholm Trail phase 2

Expected to be part of Chisholm Trail phase 2. Turn right here from shared-use path.

Southern access on Cavendish Place to the Timberworks development off Cromwell Road. It might turn out to be the southern end of Chisholm Trail Phase 2 for quite a while - but it's still part of the construction site at the moment.

Extra strengthening bars have been welded to the cattle grids on the Chisholm Trail.

Cosmetic panels added to bridge ramp.

Art work in the Chisholm Trail/Newmarket Road underpass

Not yet finished... the Chisholm Trail bridge over the Cam

Predictable result of the chicane: almost all riders now cut the corner

Water flowing across the cycleway after heavy rain.

Decorative panels being added to the subway.

The new mural in the Newmarket Road underpass on the Chisholm Trail

Reflective tape has been added, but with unhelpful red/white orientation for travel in this direction.

Some reflective tape has been added - with appropriate red-white orientation from this side but as for two lanes in the same direction.

Junction left to the Abbey-Chesterton Bridge (Chisholm Trail) and right to the riverside route (NCN route 51)

A shame not to have a double cattle grid here on the Chisholm Trail.

Junction of the old route to the Newmarket Road crossing and (to the left) the new Chisholm Trail to the Newmarket Road underpass.

Good practice - double cattle grids, not found everywhere on the Chisholm Trail.

Nice wide bridge on the Chisholm Trail

Link to Newmarket Road and the Chisholm Trail underpass

The Chisholm Trail approaching Newmarket Road

Dreadfully restrictive junction arrangement on the link between the Chisholm Trail and NCN route 51 - many people will be cutting across the grass to the right rather than turning so sharply on the asphalt.

Wiggley stretch of Chisholm Trail towards the Abbey-Chesterton Bridge

View for users of the footbridge when they reach the Chisholm Trail. They might sport the Heras fencing (while it remains in place) but it's not at all obvious from here that there's a paved alternative via the old Mildenhall rail alignmen ... [more]

This is what greets users of the footbridge from Stourbridge Common when they reach the Chisholm Trail. No signage (yet) to direct them on their eastbound route.

These triangular panels do not fit correctly and are each only held in place by two bolts, whereas there are holes for four. I asked a pair of men in hi-viz about this and one of them said his team had added the cable ties in the other h ... [more]

Abbey Chesterton bridge on the Chisholm Trail. Measured by Martin’s boots (26 December 2021): footway 2.3 meters, cycleway 2.7 metres.

First Blood! New graffiti on day 4. See #177043.

Blank canvas 🤣 Only for a few days, see #177055.

The Chisholm Trail enabler.

When will local authorities learn? The outcry when barriers were installed at Addenbrooke's Hospital had them removed within a week. Do they think barriers on the Chisholm Trail - a major active travel project - will go unnoticed? Be accep ... [more]

Cafe area of south compound beginning to be tidied up, fence posts waiting to go up.

Another stretch of fence now done - alongside Newmarket Road

Tarmac looks finished - but then partially covered for machinery to cross - south of the underpass.

Yellow nosings on south steps reinstated, and looking complete.

Chicanes on the northern bike approach to the Abbey-Chesterton Bridge.

Pedestrian gate, and part of the fence around the cattlegrid, now installed. Several bits still to do.

Progress on the wooden fence on the south ramp - but it's not finished.

Progress on the Trail south of the Newmarket Rd underpass

Beginning to add the wooden fences to either side of the south bridge ramp

Still-scruffy flood compensation hollow alongside the Trail

Junction from Trail towards railway footbridge

The attractive S-bend in the Trail south of the footbridge path

The section of the Trail that now forms the dogleg in the path to the footbridge

The repositioned point where the informal east-west path crosses the Trail to head towards the railway footbridge. The route towards the narrow bridge over the brook, leading to the railway bridge, can just be seen at right of shot.

The junction at the foot of the south ramp to the Chisholm Trail river bridge

The cattlegrid beside the south ramp is in, and some (but not all) parts of its black fence are on site.

Wayfinding signs waiting to go up. Two direct walkers to Ditton Meadows and riders to Cambridge North and Chesterton. One is for NCN51 towards Fen Ditton and Bottisham. There seem to be at least three more in the heap.

Stone cladding looks complete on the south east wing wall

Someone's noticed a deadline: Sunday working to level and roll a section of Trail sublayer next to Barnwell Lake.

The south compound has been excavated to set the level of the Trail.

Lots of planting either side of the Trail, and access to Barnwell Meadow, north of the underpass.

Progress on the new crossing at Cheney Way

Path alterations at Moss Bank

The link between Fen Road and the towpath is 'closed' (though walkers can and do get around the side of the barrier at each end). There's nothing obvious yet to explain the closure.

The horizontals have been removed from the fence on the west side of the brook. They were on the outside of the posts, which I guess was the wrong side.

The wooden fences are going up on the path beside the realigned brook

This junction between the Trail on Ditton Meadows, and the path from Ditton Walk & Wadloes Road, now has a bit of splay - and a new marker post.

Yellow nosings on the north steps look complete

Yellow 'nosings' are going onto the south steps beside the bridge

This looks like the top-layer tarmac where the path beside the brook meets NCN51 (or becomes part of rerouted NCN51?). I couldn't tell what the circular inset and lettering (left foreground) signify.

'Landscaping' is underway on the roadside banks either side of the south end of the Newmarket Road underpass

This looks like top-layer tarmac going down on the Trail approach to Newmarket Road north side.

The bridge to the cafe site looks to be a good size - and again of a different style.

Cattlegrids protecting the bridge to the cafe site look rather close to the fairly sharp bend onto the bridge.

The bridge surface is now made from decking-style slats, with two narrow non-slip stripes on each slat. It is better than the previous plain boards.

The bridge in the common is now open at full width, and apparently finished.

Barriers at the railway underpass on Coldhams Common. Gate, passable width: 78cm. Cattle Grid width: 125cm.

Completed cattlegrid and gates north of the railway underpass

Preparations for crossing of Cheney Way - and realignment of kerb?

Widened (?) path heading towards Cheney Way

Fence and gate at cattlegrid south of the railway underpass look finished
