    This was all part of a Grand Scheme to have high level walkways throughout the city centre. You can see bits of them all over the city centre, but few of them were ever linked up.

    Default Demolition of city's last walkway

    An enclosed footbridge in Liverpool city centre, which has become a focus
    for anti-social behaviour, is to be demolished this weekend.


    The bridge, across the Strand, is the last remaining part of a system of
    walkways introduced in the 1970s.



    In recent years, it has been closed at night to prevent rough sleepers and
    gangs of youths congregating.

    The Strand will be closed to traffic between St Nicholas Place and Liver
    Street until 0600 GMT on Monday.

    Only the steps are left (Sat. night)...the rest has already gone. A good view, of what's left, can be had from Beetham Plaza (where the Bucket Fountain is).
