    They seem to have gone for the ready rusted Angel of the North look and to be fair I think it came in £1.2 million under budget.

    Part of the scheme is a new footpath direct from the station Scarborough bays car park to the footbridge which saves a few minutes walk, mainly crossing Leeman Road.

    There has been such access for a number of years. I haven't used the new bridge yet, so it may have been modified as part of this scheme.
