The gates on the Irwell River Path have been locked all day today. Strangely it was only the set under the Trafford Road bridge, as if the gates further down have not been locked overnight.
If this is the case then it is totally pointless locking the gates at all.
Around a quarter to nine this morning...
and six this evening.
I have been informed that Quaywatch manage the gated access along the Ordsall stretch on behalf of Salford City Council. It looks like they are failing to do their job properly.
These gates should be removed, as the cycle path should be available 24 hours a day. This is not the first time this has happened.
