    oh lol
    To be honest Jase the Lift shafts are different to what they re usually like. Usually u have a steel structure in 4 corners of the lift shafts crossed off at each level and this is identifiable from a distance. But when they installed the stairs you would have never known there would be lifts inbetween them wothout the plans.

But if there not getting rid of the old bridge it would be hard to get on as you say, as the stadium site is about 1M higher than the PX road.

    Found some photos i took before work began on the stadium.
    The bridge half way down old Warrington road.



    The line splits at this location, did this branch line go into UGB or Pilks?



    On top of the bridge.



    View from the bridge



    Warrington old road before work started.



    Warrington old road now.

    If memory serves me well that bridge was the one all the wagons used to get stuck under coming out of the old U.G.B. loading yard.

    Both the sheet works and the old UGB had a railway system which came together roughly where the B@Q island is now, the sheet works still has a railway conection, the end of Watson street, the street that ran through the sheet works had a rail crossing just before it met Warrington old road.
    For those not old enough to remember, one side of Watson St is the row of warehouses and factory buildings opposite the back of Tesco on the link road.

    i have just had a mad thought. What if they are thinking of demoloshing them 2 old bridges and extending the stadium site right upto the retail park. As there is a lot or redevelopmemt in that area with the gas tower an all, wojld seem a shame to keep an old railway line as a sliver between the two. Especially of it isnt being re opened.

    This shows the general arrangement of the stadium with the ramp elevations and location on old Warrington road.

    I think the stadium could force a decision on the old rail line, last I heard they where in parliament trying to get it opened
