Railway flyover, North Kensington
Railway flyover, North Kensington
The flyover simply takes a train from one side of the tracks to another: its purpose was to enable stock movements between Paddington and the locomotive and carriage depots at Old Oak Common to take place without slow-moving trains having to obstruct traffic by moving across the main lines on the level.
In the distance, Erno Goldfinger's iconic Trellick Tower.
