Rail and road from the Perrymans Farm Road bridge
Rail and road from the Perrymans Farm Road bridge
Perrymans Farm Road bridge offers this excellent view of rail (the Central line just outside Newbury Park station) and King George Avenue (the private access road to the nearby Sainsbury's store). Here the view is complete with a Central line train starting its westbound duty having just stopped for lunch in the siding and a van rounding the bend heading for Sainsbury's. The greenery on the embankment on the left was only planted a month or two ago following what looked like an attempt at building a footpath, which involved several trees and hedgerows being felled. However, the project seemed to fall through, as under the far end of the bridge next to Oaks Park School there is a small, narrow arch which allows the cable racks for the Central line to continue underneath the bridge and presumably there was not enough room to squeeze the path underneath it. It also looked as if the path was going to come to a dead end after the bridge due to the narrow gap between the trees and the railway. Just a month or two after the project was abandoned, Sainsbury's prohibited pedestrian access along King George Avenue, therefore the path may have been constructed as an alternative route for Sainsbury's customers to access the store.
