Milligan Street bridge over the railway – about to be removed?

I noted that a another tarmaced diversion has been built on the Arena site, presumably for buses.  This diversion goes away from the railway and under the bridge over the railway, BUT where it passess under the bridge there is insufficient head room for the road laying equipment.  Consequently the tarmac finishes either side of the bridge ramp.

I knew the bridge was ultimately scheduled for removal as part of the arena redevelopment and the construction of a new underground bus station, but has assumed that alternative crossing routes would be constructed before bridge removal.

Given the bike path fiasco around the Arena that would appear to be a foolish assumption.
