Does anyone know the state of play with the footpath access into Syon Park from Duchess Gate ?

I thought it was meant to be opened up in connection with the construction of the Waldorf Astoria. However it has always been closed when I have travelled along London Road. Yesterday I was in the park and saw a dedicated board at the Astoria end of the path which showed the opening times - but it was covered up with an old notice reading something like "Path closed - Construction Works". I couldn't see any obvious indication of work activity having taken place recently.

Googling, I came across a Sustainable Development C'tee Proposal from 2003 which included:

"...SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT COMMITTEE 11 MARCH 2003

Phase 1 prior to hotel opening

Restoration and re-opening of Duchess Gate for pedestrian use with an associated
permissive footpath with hours to be agreed.

3. Duchess Gate Access
The report previously stated that ideally the gates should be open between 6am or
dawn which ever is earlier until 6pm or dusk whichever is later. The Duchess
Gate is proposed to be open between the hours of 8am to 5:30pm from November
to February, 7am to 7:30pm during March, April, September and October, and
7am to 9pm from May to August. This compares with the previous offer of 8-
00am to 5-30pm. The proposed hours broadly comply with the hours sought and
reflects the hours of daylight throughout the year particularly in the evening.
Recommendation: This is considered to be acceptable"

Any target date for opening ?
