Like I said, same brain trust. If you know ahead of time it will be 9 months, put more manpower on it and do it in 5 or 6.

The walkway is a different brainfart. Neighbors have been calling for its MAINTENANCE ever since it was built and left to deteriorate JUST LIKE THE FIRST WALKWAY that it replaced. This is walkway number three. There is no reason not to expect it to suffer the same fate as the previous two versions.

The work on the most recent version began over a year ago to the outrage of some of us when we were finally allowed to see the plans and managed to get them changed to something much more acceptable for the first part of the walkway, though there's more to go and more haggling to do. The original plan for the third version of the walkway had huge blocks of concrete structures everywhere. Tons and tons more concrete poured over even more beach and what few green areas remain. Each municipal administration preaches its devotion to ecological sustainability then proceeds to pour tons more cement where it isn't needed or even wanted. Construction contracts mean... Well, no need to wallow in the mire.
