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

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.

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

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

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'.

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

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

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.

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.

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.

Brickwork at eastern end of jetty

Top round-section handrail beginning to be added

Brickwork now done at western end of jetty

Brickwork now done at eastern end of jetty

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

More jetty handrails fitted

Jetty section under railway bridge appears to offer decent headroom

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

First two sections of jetty in place, handrail components ready for fitting

Jetty section 3 - narrower under the railway bridge - ready for installation from pontoon

Assembling the pontoon for jetty installation was neither quick nor - at times - quiet

For western end of new jetty

New support uprights for new jetty

Early work at west end of new jetty

A reminder that they've had to work alongside a stream, which hasn't been obvious in later photos

Old boardwalk had many small support uprights - unlike new jetty

Beginning of the end for the old boardwalk on NCN51

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

Full sweep of jetty as seen from the east

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

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

gap at eastern end of jetty

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

Jetty sections 5, 6 & 7

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

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

ready for the final three jetty sections: Chisholm Trail at the river

Photo taken thru the Heras fencing - the jetty surface and railing have been removed.

Jetty route now closed.

This jetty overhanging the river under the railway bridge is due to close today until summer 2020 for construction of the Abbey - Chesterton foot and cycle bridge.
