Exactly. It doesn't make sense. And unless they really are burrowing underneath after
building it, the slightly higher level just means a big pond rather than drowning the hubs after rain. Not much of an improvement, given they are resurfacing the whole paddock.
Sorry what i meant by off-shoot was that they haven't built a bike path stub that comes off the new one. The idea being if you had a stub you wouldnt need to close off the path when you need to reconnect the new path to it. With that said it looks like the new path they are building will need to be ripped up anyway as you wan to have a connecting path coming in at right angles. And with the new bridge path being a priority leg then some reconstruction will be required.
Does anyone now understand why it is has taken Citylink 12 month longer to open up Burnley Harbour. They need to do everything at least 3 times to make sure they have got it right.
edit I just found this. Thre is a plan but it is in a PDF from the boroondara BUG http://boroondarabug.org/w/images/a/a9/Newsletter_2011_November.pdf
Council is upgrading 350 metres of shared path on the Gardiners Creek Trail at H A Smith Reserve in Hawthorn, between Glenferrie Road and Kooyongkoot Road. The upgrade includes widening the path to a width of 3 metres with an improved alignment and drainage (please see plan below for location details).
Works are expected to begin in early November and finish mid December 2011.
A path detour will be provided while the path is being reconstructed.
