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

Restriction on the ncn51 diversion

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

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

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

Colourful lighting at Riverside Bridge.

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?

Large timber platform adjacent to Chisholm Trail bridge abutment

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

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

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.

Is the brook between rail and Trail now partly filled in? Look through&beyond the railings.

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

Waiting for Network Rail to close line for installation of final three sections of jetty below Chisholm Trail bridge alignment

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

NCN route 51 signed as route 11 - it may be an alternative route for when the towpath is unavailable.

Ditton Meadows - this route is closed for construction of the bridge.

Footbridge on Ditton Meadows. The gravel recently added here helps access a little.

This route across the railway footbridge remains open, but is briefly closed to allow heavy plant and other construction vehicles to cross.

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

Jetty route now closed.

Tree trunk on Ditton Meadows where work begins today until summer 2020 for construction of the Abbey - Chesterton foot and cycle bridge.

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.

Last few days of this jetty.

Useful new sign at the bottom, if I'm not mistaken.

The route signs on this lamppost are very odd: why is it just alongside an arbitrary point in the road here and not at a junction? The sign at the top points to: Route 51 → King's Hedges 1¼ St Ives 13 (via the busway) the larg ... [more]

I have no idea why these are here. This isn't on Route 51.

I have no idea why these signs have been put here. This isn't on Route 51. There is another set a few yards away, also incorrect.

Resurfacing the riverside route - no sign for cyclists, but the pedestrian detour works just as well (barriers removed by 4.30 pm).

See clip at http://youtu.be/BYQOzBEafuM We had the fun and joy of the winter raised strip replacement on this wooden bridge. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1xniOGCp7DY Then it was removed after considerable complaints. http://www.yo ... [more]

See clip at http://youtu.be/_Wj2ezHsp2Y A second clip about this after it's had time to bed in. It is awful. I felt great pain after finishing riding along the bridge in my forearms. I can't think what this would be like to ride regu ... [more]

I was rather amazed that this poster for the #ReachRide http://cambridgecyclingcity.org/ strung between the posts of this old notice was still there more than a week after we put it up.

See clip at http://youtu.be/3IwWqIP39tM The bridge under the Stourbridge Common railway bridge has been quite slippy for a while. So it's having it's slip-stop surface replaced. Here's a good before and after clip while it's been hal ... [more]
