From muddy stream to our own boardwalk

A few months ago, there was still a shrub rose growing at King George Station. I sniffed it en route to work for years.

A few weeks ago, that rose went down as a huge hole was dug for new development. The fenced and re-routed pedestrian path past the construction site to the station was a stream of running water and mud from the wheel washers.

Then someone created a small cement dam along the edge of the chain link fence to redirect the extra water another way.

That only lasted a few days before it was breached by increasing volumes of water, helped on by autumn rains.

For now we have our very own raised boardwalk, topped with anti-slip roofing material and decorated with hot pink paint. It's been an interesting evolution of pedestrian pathways. What next?
