Yes Lyn. And looking at Ell's second photo in post # 63 with the raised road for the tram, it gives the illusion of an even narrower space. I only remember it as, effectively, a back street. There was no reason to use it unless you were going to Navigation Street. But I notice when I came up for the Christmas meet the station exit had been moved to the Navigation Street end. I suppose the exit via the HSBC ramp is out of use while station development takes place. This is all a long, long way from the 'avenue' it once was when the Queens Hotel was built. A pity really because when you arrive at New St this is the first view of the City Centre you get, and it's not currently a very attractive or welcoming view. Hopefully that will all change when the transformation is complete. Viv.
