ONE of the most notorious eyesores in the World Heritage Site, the footbridge which crosses The Strand, is to be demolished.
It will be replaced by two new super-crossings that will halt all traffic while pedestrians cross in safety to the Pier Head.
The footbridge was erected in the 1970s when Liverpool had a passion for walkways and so-called footpaths in the sky.
All of them have now been demolished, leaving the Strand bridge as the last of what was once aimed to be a city-wide network of high level walkways.
The footbridge was refurbished several years ago and has even figured in a television drama series. It was also occupied by Fathers for Justice in one of their publicity stunts. more
