WALKING MAY be one of the healthiest and most environmentally-friendly ways of getting around, but people choosing to approach Wexford town on foot from the Ardcavan / Ferrybank side at present face a much more perilous challenge than they may initially expect.
Completed footpaths are available only in stretches on either side of a road which has been the subject of controversy since works on it began over a year ago.
When visited on a number of occasions in the past week, however, strewn bollards and road signs were the only imminent appearance of work underway on either the road or footpath.
At the end of some stretches of path, signs indicate that walkers should cross over the bustling main artery into the town and travel on the other side of the road.
Unfortunately, however, a continuous footpath is not in place on both sides and so walkers are instead faced with crossing in front of entrances to premises where drivers are entering and exiting.
