Still a bit to do before it will be ready for tarmac

Path widened but edge boards not yet all fitted at this end

Widened path on Coldham's Common south nearly ready to be 'prepped for tarmac' according to timetable board at the other end. Both of these gates open in the same direction: not immediately obvious why two were needed.

Scaffolding gone, backfilling started, still work to do on utilities. Impossible to tell whether the water main was reinstated below this lot, but the pipe meant to reinstate the gas main has clearly not been used. Wonder if this all has ... [more]

Scaffolding supports gone, backfilling started, but still some work to do for proper reinstatement of utilities.

Culvert for Chisholm Trail bridge south ramp to cross realigned brook

The usual forest of posts to negotiate on the central island, plus an interesting traffic light repeater

Not convinced that this is the most useful bit of signage

Pedestrians-only footway is seriously narrow on this corner - in stark contrast to the one diagonally opposite

I think this is where southbound cyclists leave can leave the carriageway to join shared-use path, just as it becomes too narrow.

Shared-use transition to segregated ?

Space gained from Robin Hood frontage

Space finally gained from Robin Hood - but their 'gateposts' haven't been moved back.

Eastbound pedestrian crossing

In the foreground is the eastbound pedestrian crossing, and just beyond it an unmarked dropped kerb. Beyond that on the left, a sign instructing cyclists that they should have used the dropped kerb to make a hazardous exit from shared-use ... [more]

Space is OK as far as the eastbound crossing, but not good beyond it

Crossing to head south seems at first glance to head for the opposing carriageway - stagger in central island not easy to see while work continues This, and all others, officially for pedestrians only.

Reasonably generous space shared between cycles and pedestrians, the latter potentially waiting to cross

'Robin Hood junction' works. Cycles heading east get a tolerable exit from shared-use path onto carriageway

Power cable moved, hole prepared for additional cattle grid at Chisholm Trail railway underpass on Coldham's Common

Steps being added at north end of Chisholm Trail river bridge

Parapet added to Chisholm Trail underpass at Newmarket Road

New cattle grids for Chisholm Trail at brook crossing on Coldham's Common

New cattle grids for Chisholm Trail at brook crossing on Coldham's Common

First signs of the realignment on the approach to the railway underpass

Two cattle grids and space for gate alongside, and finished surface from there most of the way to the existing path. Zoom lens makes the turn beyond the grids look tighter than it is.

Northeast wing wall cap looks finished

Progress on north side wing walls at Chisholm Trail underpass, and maybe ready for the precast parapet between them

Precast steps for Chisholm Trail river bridge awaiting installation

Base nearly ready for north side steps to Chisholm Trail river bridge

Large-diameter pipes alongside Chisholm Trail bridge ramp are already covered, leaving no clues about what they are for

Cattle grids for two-way cycle traffic on Chisholm Trail, with space for one walkers' gate beyond.

Smart brickwork where Chisholm Trail will cross the brook. Seems to be single-skin, so cosmetic rather than structural for bridge/culvert abutment?

Two cattle grids nearly ready where Chisholm Trail will cross from Coldham's Common to the cafe/underpass site

Ground cut away either side, but existing path apparently untouched, in Chisholm Trail works on Coldham's Common

Lightweight plastic-tile temporary path alongside Chisholm Trail works on Coldham's Common

Two large-diameter pipes are being installed alongside the Chisholm Trail bridge ramp on Ditton Meadows

'Portable roadway' being installed alongside path on Coldham's Common. Not clear yet whether it's a bypass for path users while Chisholm Trail improvements are in progress, or for use by contractors' machinery.

There has been a bit of progress on the caps to the Chisholm Trail underpass north wing walls

Blocks stacked, and rain cover (?) at site of work for Chisholm Trail bridge or culvert between Coldham's Common and the cafe site

Heras site fencing being erected on each side of the path on Coldham's Common for Chisholm Trail work

Further components being fitted on top of ramp sidewalls at Chisholm Trail river bridge.

Additional obstruction at cattle grid adjacent to ncn51 on Ditton Meadows. Fixed at oblique angle, so reasonably benign in one direction but potentially hostile in the other direction.

Evidence at last of progress on the missing link in the south ramp for the Chisholm Trail river bridge.

Badly-positioned new bollard on ncn51 is all-but invisible to approaching eastbound riders.

Finished cap on a section of the Chisholm Trail underpass wing wall.

Shuttering being installed for cap to Chisholm Trail underpass wing walls.

Gate and railing at cattle grid on Stourbridge Common leave ncn51 with a clear width of just 1.15m. The adjacent gate when open leaves just 1.0m.

One (of previously two) cattle grids has at some time been removed where ncn51 crosses Coldham's Brook on Stourbridge Common.

Badly-positioned, unyielding, inadequately highlighted new bollard obstructs ncn51 on Ditton Meadow

ncn51 on Stourbridge Common is rendered just 1.3m wide by greenery, and the other side is crumbling.

South ramp wing wall is repaired

Finished surface on new Ditton Meadows link between ncn51 and Chisholm Trail

Beginning to work on the wall beside the steps to the north end of the Chisholm Trail river bridge

ncn51 jetty is open, and protected by a cattle grid

ncn51 jetty is open (and already getting a lot of use)

Culvert for realigned brook at south end of Chisholm Trail bridge ramp

Odd-looking position of cattle grid within width of culvert on ncn51 reinstatement

Progress towards reopening ncn51 at the Chisholm Trail bridge site

Still work to do on the ramp south of the Chisholm Trail bridge, where conditions were tricky on the old alignment of the brook.

A temporary fence is being erected between ncn51 jetty and the ongoing bridge works.

Cattle grid (in box at left) on ncn51 will be very close to the new culvert beside the Chisholm Trail bridge

Broken section of Chisholm Trail ramp wall being trimmed back prior to repair

Formers being installed for the cattle grid on ncn51 between Ditton Meadow and the new jetty

Curved sections of shuttering being prepared for the cap to the wing walls at the Chisholm Trail underpass

Boards now define the edges of the first part of the Chisholm Trail on Coldham's Common.

Could be preparations for the cattle grid on ncn51 between Ditton Meadow and jetty

Base layer in place for reinstated ncn51 on Ditton Meadow next to Chisholm Trail river bridge.

The cap that ties Chisholm Trail underpass wing sections together seems to be going to be quite a complex shape - presumably to align with the stone facing below it.

Lots more rebar now in place along the top of the southwest wing wall at the Chisholm Trail underpass

Lots more rebar now in place along the top of the southeast wing wall at the Chisholm Trail underpass

Rebar added and scaffolding going up for capping the north wings at the Chisholm Trail underpass

Thought to be where culvert sections have been installed for the realigned brook near the south end of the Chisholm Trail bridge ramp

Scaffolding and platforms giving access to the side and top of the abutment wing walls

Pouring and levelling a concrete base for ncn51 next to the new culvert

Work in progress to reinstate ncn51 east of the Chisholm Trail bridge

Refreshing - and judging by the marker posts widening - ncn51 east of the Chisholm Trail bridge and working on the gap between this path and the new culvert

Simple scaffolding access for repairs to south ramp sidewall.

Simple scaffolding access for repairs to north ramp sidewall.

Modal filter, Great Kneighton/Clay Farm (this is shown on OpenCycleMap as a footpath, while the others are clearly cycleways)

Progress on surface of new ncn51 jetty

Beginning to work on new path between NCN51 on Ditton Meadow and the east end of the new jetty

Progress on surface of new ncn51 jetty

Beginning to work on new path between NCN51 on Ditton Meadow and the east end of the new jetty

Next layer of subsurface is being laid on link path between NCN51 and Chisholm Trail at south edge of Ditton Meadow

It looks like the culvert will work well to interface with the existing path beside the river, and with the turn towards the bridge ramp

South ramp for Chisholm Trail river bridge has damage matching that on the north ramp

ncn51 culvert is usefully wide, but railings are upright and don't match those on the jetty

Railings are being fitted on the culvert where ncn51 will cross the brook
