Comment on Boardwalk now a permanent blight on the landscape by Ian Sharp.

It was possible to walk / run / ride this route prior to this construction, narrow foot track. For those who wanted a proper cycle path there was a good option on the other side of the river. Given the fiasco of “Broken Promises Drive” decades ago, this seems like another kick in the guts for traditional owners and those who think we show a bit more respect for the landscape.
