I got a closer look at the new lighting going in along the Irwell Towpath last night.
In the wider sections they seem to have rewired the lighting and removed the cobbles,
and the graffiti artists have been having a bit of fun.
Whilst in the narrower sections the lamp posts have been removed
and the lighting is in the process of being mounted on the wall.
This makes the path a bit wider, except where they have left the bin.
Beyond the end of the lighting works is a large patch of new tarmac which has been laid very unevenly and if it doesn't get fixed it will not last long.
All in all it looks like a worthwhile improvement, and it will be nice when it is finished.
