ACWA Working Party
On 17-Jun-2009 a Working Party installed the
final two new gates and a new sleeper bridge

June Achievements 2 (cont. from WP News 38)
The first new gate is a k/g located at GR 366 709,
and the second new gate is a p/g the other
side of the stream. These two gates replace the rickety stiles
we have struggled with over recent years, and which have nearly caused
a number of users to slip into the stream.
The k/g & s/b completed and the p/g being installed : 17-Jun-2009
A new 3 sleeper bridge between the two gates replaces a similar but aging bridge.
These tasks complete all the priority tasks on this stretch of
Another highlight of this WP was the introduction of our new high
visibility vests - they are marked "A Coventry Way" on the
back!. From now on users will notice who is doing the good
work, and of course we will all be safer when working by a road.
