Yeah Grammer they are doing / have done away with all the footbridges as they continue the walkway up as far as Glasthule Station. That's the little bridge I wrote about in 'Out on Maneuvers' way back when :roll:

All the walls are being brought down to ground level Strum and a 'roof' placed over the railway line turning the area created plus the existing Metals into a Plaza (walkway) with cafes etc. similar to what they have already done down at the Pav end. Someone here said (I think) it was a Green Party inititive and was supposed to go on out to Barnhill Road, couldn't see it happening then, can't see it happening now either but up as far as Glasthule Station looks like it is still on the cards.
Martello Avenue is the first turn on the left down from the Park heading towards Glasthule. There is a set of steps and a ramp leading onto the Metals.
