"Thanks for the update ... *sigh* I guess that means users of linear path will have to put up with that dreadful narrow & slippery section of wooden boards past the cemetery for a few more years. The council is probably hoping it can hold out…"

"Yeah, there's a bridge there & another bridge a bit further west. The river bank is quite steep around there, so the degree of difficulty for bush bashing is fairly high :) One other detour option would be to use Beatty St & Hartley…"

Mark S replied to Savvas's discussion Notice: Linear Park Closure....
"This seems completely unnecessary. All the work involving heavy equipment (excavation, foundations, frames) has already been done over the last 2 months, and no path closure was required. It feels like the builder has decided it would be a tiny bit…"

"This has been my preferred detour route: Eastbound I use the roundabout and then Ashwin Pde. Westbound I use the footpath (ride courteously etc) on the north side of Ashwin until I can turn right into the brickworks carpark. That way there's no…"

"It's a pity the amount requested is only $150,000 - good lighting along linear path costs about $5-10,000 per light, so assuming a 30m spacing between lights, that's about 500m of path. The bits I'd really like to see lit are mostly…"

"Hopefully it is temporary - not just for the sake of linear path, but if there's a repeat of last years flooding the infill could cause problems - there are only a couple of 2m diameter culverts at the base for river flow. It's quite hard…"
