Railway viaduct is still there

Looking up the line of Runcorn Locks the two arches of the railway viaduct that once straddled the two lines of the canal are still there.  Immediately beyond are the approach roads for the road bridge that block the canal.

The line of the Old Locks continues directly behind the camera while the line of the New Locks diverges to pass out of the bottom right corner of the photo. The two lines merged into one large basin before passing through two parallel sets of locks through the two railway viaduct arches.  The two lines swapped sides, with the Old Locks passing through the right hand arch and the New Locks passing through the left hand arch.
