Campervans and caravans have returned to Hales Meadow for the summer holidays.
Minor repairs to the ancient Abingdon Bridge require the knowledge of heritage experts to proceed and this week the cones have been extended across the full span of the bridge to give pedestrians and cyclists more room.
On Hales Meadow, over Abingdon Bridge, there were spectators at Abingdon Vale Cricket Club pavilion along with batsmen awaiting their innings.
On the other side of the pitch were the campervans and caravans.
For traffic approaching the extended cones on Abingdon Bridge there is a sign that says ‘Temporary active travel lane’.
The wider pedestrian walkway is just what was needed during the first lockdown when people were going into the road, dangerously near traffic, to avoid other pedestrians coming the other way. Most of the cyclists were still going with the cars and lorries.
