To join up the cycle paths from La Collette to Commercial buildings, the plan - now backed by a Roads Committee with a history of absurd anti-car-ism - will see the 'English' and 'French' harbours eaten into, to widen the road and include a dedicated cycle path - if Planning agree.
They say "The granite work would be in the same style as the existing walls, but
all the existing granite and slipway cobbles would be left intact behind
and beneath the new structures."
I don't believe they'll get it to look authentic, and I think it would spoil the look of these old harbours and slipways. Maybe not so much this one by South Pier ...
.. but definitely this one. And look - there's a wide enough pavement on the wall side of the road that only gets used because there isn't a pavement on the water side.
So why not scrap the existing pavement, move the road over, and have a shared pavement and cycle path on the harbour side? A zebra crossing could allow access to the steps up to Pier Rd, it's not as if it would see any major use and hold up the traffic. Much cheaper to swap the road and pavement over than to spoil the old granite work!
My pics? What can I say... but that there are two types of photographers : artists and recordists. I'm a recordist - for me it's a technical challenge to try to capture what the eye sees, rather than what the imagination sees. I'm no artist.
My camera is good enough for the web, I'm not interested in spending a fortune on DSLR and lenses, mucking about in pic editors, filters and all that malarkey.
I'm also driven to share, publish, and show things to people when they're interested in specific things - like island scenery. If I was into art, I'd despair at just how much there is out there already, and how difficult it would be to find an audience because no-one has time to wade through billions of pretty pictures.
If you want to see what Jersey looks like, then hang around here and I'll do my best to show you. Thanks!
