Head uphill towards the path at the edge of the roundabout to avoid the chicane at the corner of the shop

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

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.

M11 bridge included in Comberton Greenway proposal

Handles on the sides of the bollard - and there are evidently times of day when building shadow can significantly impair visibility.

Raised reflective studs doing, for a change, what they are meant to do by guarding the bollard - but handles on the sides of the bollard.

Four redundant, raised, hazardous, reflective studs - and handles on the sides of the bollard beyond.

Inconspicuous handles on the sides of the bollard

Three redundant and now hazardous raised reflective studs, and one (on the right) raised and hazardous cover on bollard socket.

Open at last, and looking good (and already well-used).

After negotiating the narrow gap, you're heading straight for a pair of redundant reflective studs, which stand sufficiently proud to cause problems for small-wheel bikes (or scooters) if struck obliquely.

Example of the reflective studs used in several places on the southern busway path

Unacceptable old markings for a very narrow cycle lane, now heading straight for a narrow gap between lamp post and bollard.

Cosmetic panels added to bridge ramp.

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

Footpath connection to the Institute of Astronomy path, Cambridge

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.

OpenCycleMap shows a cycleway from the NE ending in this building - can that be right?

The barriers seen in #51104 have been replaced, and there are now cycle stands instead of car parking to the right.

A dropped kerb and proper cycle link would be helpful.

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.

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.

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.

Potential access to Chisholm Trail spur from Cityglades access road. Currently blocked by capped-off (disused?) oil pipes.

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.

Completed cattlegrid and gates north of the railway underpass

Completed cattlegrid and gates north of the railway underpass

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

Large space on west side of Cheney Way junction

Widened (?) path heading towards Cheney Way

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

They've made a start on the fence at the cattlegrid north of the railway underpass

Still a bit of work to be finished on the surface of the new bridge

New bridge over brook in the Common is open, both temporary bridges have gone

Roadside steel fence above underpass south portal

Present state of the south compound at Newmarket Road. (The portacabins have been relocated near the road - not removed.)

Roadside steel fence (not really a 'crash barrier') above underpass north portal

Wooden fence at top of underpass north wing wall

Wooden fence going up on the south bridge ramp, and in the distance work ongoing on surfacing the Trail

The bridge is 'same width as path' (or, strictly, path is going to be same width as bridge): it's ~3.5m wide on the approach.

Various bits of wooden fence now installed above underpass wing walls.

Short stretch of wooden fence now installed at edge of realigned brook.

Surprised and rather delighted that a leaflet delivered door to door is about Cycle Theft. For a monthly fee they offer GPS tracking and 24/7 recovery for your bike or ebike. Some video testimonies on their website: https://www.backp ... [more]

'Bird mesh' above jetty looks OK. (Not yet fitted on north side)

Another slight adjustment for the orientation of the bridge

Looks like this bridge may get wooden railings

First pieces of the bridge are now in place

The bridge will line up reasonably well with the path beyond

Just washing, or applying some special brew (sealant, fungicide, ...) ?

North bridge ramp, steps, etc beginning to look quite tidy

As expected, installation of bird mesh involves removal of the tall wooden fence that's been making it more difficult to spy on progress

Signs of a slight rethink about the orientation of the bridge in the middle of the common
