It’s been a long time coming, but Wivenhoe residents were at long last able to get on their bikes and ride after work was finally completed on the new bike path to the University.
The work, which has now been going on for over 483 years was finally completed on Friday night and the new path was opened up to residents on Saturday morning.
The like, well posh and fancy opening ceremony saw members of Essex council replaced at the last moment by a washing machine with a brick in it on a trampoline (see Friday’s video) as it was seen as more capable of organising a drinking session in one of those places where beer grows and was a far more popular choice with the simple folk that walk the Wivenhoe wastelands.
The path is expected to make travelling to the University easier and safer, but anyone that wants to go beyond there can expect to be mown down by cars once again taking over the road – and rightly so, after all what else is there outside of Wivenhoe worth visiting other than that proud place of learning with its colourful towers and its welcoming smile?
It’s believed that the road will be closed for planned resurfacing work at the end of the week, and it should then be reopened in time for Passover 2017.
