Permeability could be improved here.

Junction of shared-use paths (a cycle marking is visible to the right of the bins).

This looks like a pre-war cycleway but was built in about the 1980s when it was thought that the ring road would be extended across the river.

No idea why this route sign ended up here - it's nowhere near a junction.

Start of the cycleway on Arbury Road - but it should be properly integrated with the route to the southwest.

End of the cycleway on Arbury Road

Parallel crossing on Arbury Road - but the cycleways should continue to the southwest.

Harvey Goodwin Avenue

Mock-up of a idea to improve access to the footway cycle parking. Motor vehicles often park right up or overhang the buildout and this creates problems of access to our front door as these other photos show: #6501 and #106944. The ram ... [more]

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.

Mill Road Depot site under construction, which will have the Chisholm Trail along it

Access point from the retail park and Newmarket Road.

New bit of concrete track on Ditton Fields, possibly to help protect underground pipes.

Coldham’s Common work has started at the entrance from Newmarket Road.

Mill Road

Newly marked narrow cycle lanes on Cambridge Retail Park. The white line goes right up to that kerb at which point the cyclist vanishes!

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

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.

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

Modal filtering due the COVID-19 pandemic.

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

Working on installation of crossing south of housing Knightly Avenue development on Babraham Road.

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

Right turns into Devonshire Road permitted, as a result of the bridge change - the old sign was removed.

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.
