Rail Trail Detour Improved
A new bridge to replace the now structurally unsound "Powers Crossing" on the Hamilton to Brantford Rail Trail is not imminent, as far as we know, but at least the detour has been upgraded to better serve cyclists on this busy trail. A fine stone has been applied to the formerly uneven and bumpy path to the north of the defunct bridge (seen to the left in photo) making it smoother and safer for riding on. This should also aid people in wheelchairs, but the path is of course steeper without the bridge.
