The photo shows the end of the cycleway at the Brampton end, near a housing estate which is under construction (Oct 2020), and still several hundred metres from the nearest road. From here unsurfaced paths (Oct 2020) go in several directions to rejoin normal estate roads. At the time of the photo the path leading SE was cycleable.
