How’s It Looking: Glen Eden
It will take about another three weeks for KiwiRail to finish the changes to the famous Glen Eden pedestrian overbridge.
Over Christmas, workers removed the big railway footbridge ramps at an estimated cost of $600,000.
The bridge remains for locals to get to the local shops but the ramps will be replaced by stairs over Anniversary weekend.
Locals hated the dominating look of the ramps so they’re getting the sort of look Swanson got, as shown below.
The Glen Eden locals who complained think that sort of look with stairs is more in keeping with the lovingly restored station building.
