Omleiding news - Update

Since my last omleiding post, a lot of work has been done and the path appears to be paved.
It's still rough on the edges but it has progressed a lot. It can't be much longer...  Maybe they'll have a ribbon cutting!

Thanks to an article from Frits, I read that the company working on it has been constantly frustrated by cyclists ignoring the barriers and, worse, destroying the barriers.

I saw this last week.
Barriers in the canal. Maybe it was the wind.

The company had put cement blocks on the path, but cyclists were climbing over them or circumventing them.

Time for a new strategy!

Pull back,
block the "desire path"
and make the barrier as gross and unapproachable as possible.
Eww.
