Location notes
Just north of Brighton this road bridge not only crosses the main railway line into Brighton from London but also crosses over the northern end of Lovers Walk Traincare Depot.
Railway type and traffic
Class 319 (in many different liveries) and Class 377, there are a very limited amount of Virgin Class 220 workings but these services are due to be withdrawn.
This is a inner city road bridge between Brighton and Preston Park. I have not encountered any problems on my previous visits.
Road directions
From London take the A23 to Brighton, when you are almost at Brighton there is a one way system where you will bear left and then right, shortly after bearing right turn into Springfield Road and cross the other side of the one way system in to Dyke Road.

You can shoot both directions, the only noise comes from road traffic or pedestrians.
