Abandoned TVR Bridge Into Hailey Park

This bridge, clearly visible from the modern-day City Line south of Radyr Railway Station, used to carry trains across the River Taff, across Hailey Park upon an embankment, to link up with the main TVR line at Ty Mawr Bridge. This branch line was used to provide an alternative route into the railway sidings at Radyr Yard.

Radyr Yard itself is gone (closed in 1993; replaced by a modern housing estate), the railway embankment through Hailey Park has been removed, and all that remains is the bridge itself, fenced off but still spanning the Taff, serving no obvious useful purpose any more.
