The Greenway

Although it is not yet officially open one can now walk along the northern end of the NEQ Greenway. Someone has kindly removed the barriers at the Boston St. end and, at the bottom of the New England steps, have created a gap big enough to step through.
When you get to the old goods railway bridge an excellent panorama of the Victorian viaduct can be seen. Some years ago plans were afoot to erect a public work of art on this bridge, a symbolic representation of an old steam locomotive passing over the bridge when viewed from the street below. I do not know if these plans are still ongoing. If carried through I suspect it will partially obscure the above view.
