Back from a week’s holiday and surprised to see Network Rail contractors are still busy doing repairs to the rail bridge over the way up to the Kennet and Avon canal from Grosvenor Bridge.
That’s not to say they are not making a good job of it but it is one indication of why – with so much to do prior to electrification – that things are a little behind.
The track up to the towpath is a quagmire and – from what l hear – is on the end of the list of ‘improvements’ being planned for this vital way into town for pedestrians, dog walkers and cyclists.
I was nearly knocked off my bike on the London Road yesterday and want to see safer and more direct ways to get into Bath that don’t involve sitting in a car.
The weather is making things difficult for landscape contractors working on the garden at the back of the Holburne Museum but the new layout is taking shape.
PS. See the Sydney Gardens sink hole is still with us. Stopping to look in – it seems to be much deeper than the original hole that was filled in. Surely this has to have something to do with the natural springs running down the hill in this part of Bath?
