OK this is an adequate recreational greenway standard - smooth tarmac 3m wide (though not wide enough for social distancing during the pandemic). But you would have thought they would have cut back the shrubbery as part of the job if only to keep it out of the way while they were working on it. And it is a very short section - it doesn't get as far as https://www.cyclestreets.net/location/84321/
That bit was resurfaced in early March - I had to use the diversion as they were actively working on it when I rode that way on 4th March. That predates any COVID-19 money.
Edited to add: it was definitely open again with the new surface on 30 May (the next time I went that way) but I suspect it was finished & re-opened before lockdown happened in March.
Here's the relevant bit of my track on Strava.
