Photos & Video: Bailey’s Bay Walkway Progress

October 31, 2014

Segments of footbridge were successfully placed on the pylons at Bailey’s Bay yesterday [Oct 30], and upon the completion of all the work, the trail between Crawl Hill and Coney Island will be officially opened as recreation path for use by pedestrians and cyclists.

A Public Works Ministry spokesperson previously said, ““This project is part of a public-private partnership to enhance and reconnect the railway trail.

“It has only been possible through generosity of Renaissance Re, Montpelier Re, AWAC, Ironshore, the Limbo Up Foundation and Jay Nichols, who are founding members of the charity Friends of Bermuda Railway Trail.

“The Ministry of Public Works, through the Department of Parks has been spearheading the Government initiative behind this project.”

    Nice! Now how about the railway trail between Morgan's point and Rockaway get some sort of pavement. It has a million potholes and is very difficult to ride bicycles through!

    A great project and a job well done. Thanks to all who made it happen with their generosity, however it is concerning to see the lack of safety equipment involved here. Not a hard hat in sight, dont see any gloves being worn and docksiders are not an acceptable footwear for this type of operation. Would hate to see someone get hurt....

      Safety's not a factor when there's 11 supervisors onsite.

    A survey was conducted last year concerning this pathway and most of the respondents I interviewed were against it. If memory serves me correctly the general consensus of the persons interviewed across the entire island was against it as well.
