    Default Overhead Railway Southern extention

    I was taking photos of the Overhead Railway Southern extention,
    and i have a few questions someone may be able to answer.



    First, anyone any idea where this tunnel exited?









    second, were these used for dock or rail storage, i know there's an image on Yoliverpool showing the first arch being used for car repair, but as you can see its now covered in moss and running water.

    I found one of the Arches door's had rusted away so i took a few images of the inside, i couldn't enter as there was a big muddy puddle in the way (I only had trainers on).

    Maybe they should be restored before it's to late.

    right by my flat too. Those case mates were used for storing stuff brought of the ships before being transported. they are constructed and licensed to store explosives and flammable materials.

    The railway line exited that tunnel from the dingle station and went over a bridge over the corner of the dock and the railway line onto the overhead railway .

    I remember that area well as it was over the road where I used to work.

    The casemates were once going to be completely shut off when the new flats were being built but a local group got behind the proposal and they were saved. It's a sad state looking at them now - are they all empty?

    They could be put to excellent use as storage or the like and seems a waste that they're being left empty.
