Today, I had to follow a diversion route home due to roadworks. It took me an hour longer than usual to get home. Too bad it turns out that the diversion was only for traffic, not people walking. FML

Now for future reference, you know to ask whoever is in charge of the detour if foot traffic is ok or not.

It's called a detour.

It's one of those differences between US English and UK English. What a Brit would call a "lift," an American would call an "elevator." What a Brit would call a "diversion," an American would call a "detour."

Not all English speaking countries use the same words for similar things. We call it a flashlight and they call it a torch.

Am I the only one thinking that diversions are usually for car traffic and not for foot traffic?! That is it wouldn't even have occurred to me to use the diversion if I'm in foot!?

<p>What if there's a bridge out? You'd be walking straight into the river, friend.</p>

U know how to swim?

Can't see OP's location, but here in the UK we would say diversion.

Diversion route/detour... Two words that ever so apparently mean the same thing. Go troll elsewhere.
