    Hi there

    You don’t happen to know if there is a shared footpath planned to cross over Chief St next to the railway? I had a look yesterday and there is no sign of any construction, which makes me think nothing is planned. This would mean the diversion around the factory will still be required.

    Thanks Ben

      Hi Ben, Good question. Rest assured – it will happen! All the communications and meetings we’ve had with DPTI Cycling & Walking and with the Torrens Junction Project people indicate that there is to be a new bridge (or some sort of addition to the existing bridge) over Chief St to carry the Greenway’s shared use pathway. Presumably it will all happen prior to January 15th! If you cast your eye back through a few of the recent BUGBlog posts over 2017 you’ll probably see mention of this new bridge. We’re told that the new shared pathway will run continuously and without interruption from the end of the South Rd overpass exit pathway at Coglin St, all the way to a new underpass at Park Trc! Sam, BUG Secretary.
