    I think the walkways were built in 2010. Great idea, but the notion of maintenance somehow eluded the planners. The one I take to the beach stands over a meter above ground level and runs perhaps 80 meters with no guardrails, they having been built with no lateral support, so that they leaned and leaned and fell and disappeared to become somebody's (toxic) firewood.
