All Saints Road bridge, Leicester, as seen in July 2002

All Saints Road bridge, Leicester, as seen in July 2002

Go back to the records from the Leicester North map.
L3220. This is the east side of the All Saints Road bridge, which was built to support the tracks and platforms of Leicester Central station above. The width of the bridge made the road underneath very gloomy and required the installation of street lighting. Today the old station site is a small industrial park and the bridge still sees regular traffic, albeit in rubber tyres. On top of the bridge, the old bay platforms can still be seen when not obscured by road vehicles. Notice the glazed bricks on the bridge abutment which were common on this section of the line.
