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

Kerbs nerds - I need help! I've had a Local Highways Improvement project approved to make a footpath cycle friendly by dropping a kerb & removing/widening a chicane. Despite some back & forth with the county engineer I haven't succeeded in ... [more]

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.

Building work in progress on the Barnwell cafe site that is also the location of the Chisholm Trail underpass.

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

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

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?

A bit more progress on the southern bridge abutment

Mill Road busgate signage on Brooks Road

Mill Road busgate signage on Perne Road

Large timber platform adjacent to Chisholm Trail bridge abutment

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

Small sign for bus gate closure at eastern end of Mill Road bridge

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.

Developer day at Thrive

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

Curved sections - perhaps formers to go with shuttering? - in the compound.

28/09/20 Shuttering being erected for more concrete at the bridge approach

Chisholm Trail now has asphalt surface at Barnwell Meadow.

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

Lots of waterproof membrane embedded in the brook fill??

Newly spotted in the compound, an 'asphalt paver'

Dead end signs now in place at experimental modal filters. Just missing an 'Except Cycles' sign although the cycling direction sign is almost as good.

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.

No, not digging a hole: material going from the heap and into the hole beyond it. More prep for embankment?

Somewhere in there, I think, is the part of the brook that must be realigned to make room for the embankment towards the Chisholm Trail river bridge

An out-of-control motor vehicle has clearly crossed the cycleway here.

15/09/20 - a bit more progress on ground level for eastern landfall of jetty?

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.

I don't know if it's connected to Covid-19, but this cycle parking area at St Mary's School has been cleared out.

Cafe / Underpass site work in progress

Plenty of work in progress at the Cafe / Underpass site at Newmarket Road

Good large-radius sweeping curves of the Chisholm Trail on the edge of Ditton Meadows

Thought to be sections for a culvert to contain the stream - in Chisholm Trail compound

Culvert components parked within the Trail compound

There's nothing yet inside the north-side concrete vee: still plenty of work to do there

Brickwork at eastern end of jetty

I hadn't previously noticed the wartime pillbox, now ready to guard two bridges not one

Top round-section handrail beginning to be added

Brickwork now done at western end of jetty

Brickwork now done at eastern end of jetty

This modal filter was installed in Bateman Street in the past few days to "create more space for pedestrians and cyclists in response to Covid-19".

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

Full sweep of jetty as seen from the east

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

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

Jetty sections 5, 6 & 7

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

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

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

More jetty handrails fitted

Chisholm Trail groundworks reach space next to Leper Chapel

Jetty section under railway bridge appears to offer decent headroom

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

Brackets welded to pontoon enabled installation of jetty section under railway bridge without use of crane
