Bridge abutment on Adelaide side of east bridge is now poured. Forming on west side is well underway. Not sure how well along the west bridge work is. Will be interesting to see if the bridge span is built in place or pre built and lifted in by heavy mobile crane.

I am surprised that the city still hasn't connected all the trails at least with signage. I am also surprised that you cannot travel from Fanshawe CA to downtown. Byron doesn't surprise me though.

Here's hoping the severe flooding on the Thames river hasn't damaged the construction of the new bridge footings and abutments. Large stretches of the TVP paths are under water at the north london soccer fields near Adelaide St.

The bridge concrete abutments are all done on the East side bridge now. Wondering what the next step will be now? Will they bring in heavy crane and steel girders to span the river next? Will they do anything ahead of the spring floods?

West bridge abutments still being formed near Richmond St. Likely a few weeks away from concrete being poured.

The steel bridge segments for western bridge have been delivered to Ross Park. Appears to be two large pieces. No delivery for the eastern bridge yet.

West bridge segments have now been joined together. Looks like the plan is to lift the entire bridge structure and set it in place on the abutments using a heavy crane.

East bridge segments have now been joined. Next major step will likely be the lift onto the bridge abutments by heavy lift crane. Currently the river is running fast and over the banks in spots so timing will likely depend on weather and water levels. Appears that the bridge contractor is http://www.ironbridgefab.com/

Major milestone with both bridge superstructures now lifted onto their abutments. Finishing work on the bridge decks would be next as well as the onboarding ramps. Landscaping after that and ribbon cutting.

Medway Creek, near Gainsborough-Windermere, badly needs a crossing. Why has this been neglected for decades, while other places get multiple crossings?
Its been talked about since the 90s,

Absolutely the next top priority is the Medway Valley multi-use path connecting the different pieces that are already paved so there is a continuous path from north of Sunningdale road all the way to Western campus. Also connecting the existing Snake Creek pathway as well. This was discussed in committee back in 2018 and the politicians in the previous council decided to punt it forward. This Council has not said a word about it that I have noticed.

I suspect that the few, financially rich people of the Windemere Road area have found ways of permanently punting that ball forward. They probably don't want students and university faculty/staff to have a quicker way of walking to Western.
