    Default Footbridge which crosses The Strand

    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

    Is the footbridge still open at the moment? Might have to have a walk across it before they rip it down!

    The article lifted for the OP mentions that these 1970s overhead footpaths have now all been demolished. How about the ones over Byrom Street, they're still up.

    I like this footbridge and the ones near the Museum/University. I don't use pedestrian crossings if I can avoid them. Someone had knocked a hole in one of the panels the last time I crossed the Strand...a good place to take pics from.
