ACWA Working Party
On 16-Jul-2008 a Working Party implemented improvements where ACW
joins the Kenilworth/Berkeswell Greenway, south of Carol Green.
handrail to steps on south side of Greenway nearing completion :
The three main tasks are detailed below, all at or near GR 258
1. A new handrail was added (see photo above) to steps on
south side where the old handrail was almost entirely rotted
away. This is part of Circular Walk 2.
Widened sleeper bridge : 16-Jul-2008
2. Just to the north we widened the sleeper bridge by
the "limbo bar" stile, which was previously a single sleeper
(see photo above).
Steps on north side of Greenway : 16-Jul-2008
3. The steps on north side (see photo above) were repaired
by concreting loose step tops back into position. A new slab
was added near the stile where the drain pipe had broken, thus
removing the potential hazard of users climbing off the stile
stepping into a hidden hole. We also cut back the tree which
was restricting headroom above the stile.
Both sets of steps are erratic in the variability of the height
of each step, and worthy of further improvements. However in
the longer term they may both be replaced by slopes in conjunction
with the Sustrans enhancement to the Greenway.
