NEWS FROM THE GATEACRE SOCIETY (March 2001):


BRIDGE REPAIRS AT LAST


For some years now we have been pressing for the former railway bridge over Belle Vale Road to be repaired. It forms part of the Loop Line cycle path, but the charity Sustrans which owns the route has been short of funds as a result of other engineering problems further along the line. Now, repair work is underway, and an Advertisement Consent application has been submitted (ref. 01A/0345) to paint the bridge with the words 'Trans Pennine Trail'. This will revive an old tradition; the words 'Gateacre Station - Cheshire Lines Railway' having been prominently displayed on the bridge when it was first built.
