Two trees came down on the Loop last Friday evening and were right across the path (a little west of Bridge 27, Princess Road). It seems that Friday’s heavy rain caused a strong deep flow along the channel parallel to the track and probably undermined the trees’ roots. No damage was done, though, and the trees probably fell slowly, judging by the small number of broken branches.
Thanks to quick work by Sustrans (with a little help from volunteers!), the trees were cleared and the route was well open again by 9.30 a.m. on Saturday!
