Princess Street Bridge, Blackpool
This is the bridge over Princess Street looking west. It originally carried the railway line between Blackpool South and Blackpool Central stations.
This view is looking east. The railway line closed in 1964 and in the 1980s a road was built along the trackbed.
The former sidings approaching Blackpool Central have been converted into the Central car and coach park. The eastern parapet of the bridge can be seen on the right. The western portal is set back behind the hoardings on the right.
On the inside of the western parapet of the bridge is some graffiti/street art. I suspect this dates from 2012 but I haven't been able to confirm this.
This image from Streetview shows how it looked in 2009.
