101289Photo #101289Grantchester Meadows path. Thistles and nettles growing out of the fence by 1m. These will reach half way across the new narrow shared path, visible in the background.
Narrow paths, encroachment by vegetation, these are not new problems. Why are we still building shared paths like this?

[Update - this work was started without any consultation or public announcement, and especially without any reference to the Greenways project. Madness. It was stopped after local protests.]

101288Photo #101288Grantchester Meadows path. New 1.5m wide path under construction, tight to the fence. This will be just as unsatisfactory as the existing narrow path alongside Skater's Fen.
Why such a narrow path when there is so much space available? And whatwill be done to prevent people from parking on it?
