This photo of the Hopetoun-Muller Road path is its last before it closed for three months: Jan 27 was the last day to use it until April
Now it's closed. You either have a steep uphill to Ashley Down Road -remember, it's a through road-
Or Boiling Well's Lane. That's a bit of a muddy walk, but leaves you up on Muller Road.
Once its finished, there should be less bike/pedestrian conflict. While cyclists may not believe such conflict exists, talk to those who walk it and their walks in the dark are tempered by their fear of the unlit bike coming down behind them at speed. By closing the path until the clocks change, this risk is reduced.
