Spring tides delaying Chocolate Path repairs

Bristol 24/7 has this report on the repairs to the Chocolate Path:

The end of July is the new estimated finishing date to reopen the Chocolate Path, with the city council blaming “unavoidable delays in the project”.

Construction work by Griffiths, the council’s contractor, to stabilise Cumberland Road has seen teams recently rebuilding the final sections of river wall but they have “struggled to gain access with the high spring tides”.

Workers have also found that large sections of the railway wall “had much more substantial foundations than documented, with large lumps of dense rock and concrete that needed to be excavated, which has slowed progress”.
