Alley Pig Walk

Before May flips over into June I should use up my pictures of the second part of the Pigs Alley upgrade.

The first part which ran from November 2014 'til May last year was the section that runs between Trafalgar Avenue and The end of Boscombe Road.

This new section was the other 'half' which runs from the End of Boscombe Road, behind the Hamptons and to the top of Green Lane where the Horse stables are (worth a walk if you've not been up that way - and especially now that there's a nice path to walk along).

The work began toward the end of January and was completed at the end of April.

If like me, you were one of few people who tried to navigate a bike down this path prior to this work being done - during the winter - you will appreciate the improvements to cyclability.

You can see here on the right, the beginnings of the work in this section with the path closed off. Like the top and bottom pictures here - of it finished, these two on the right show the path from both ends.
