Foxbat - Henry Silva (1977) - Robinson Road, Central

The chase continues along a main road and all the cars converge at a curved junction. This one was quite tricky to find but I got there in the end. It doesn't help that the whole road has been redeveloped since then and in fact you can see some of the redevelopment work going on in the film. In the top picture.

Believe it or not this is the circular junction where Robinson Road joins onto Garden Road next to Garden Terrace. The two bits under construction in the top picture are the beginnings of the concrete supports for the elevated road that now crosses here.

The second picture (above) shows the buildings that used to stand where Garden Terrace and No.1 Garden Terrace now stand. I am not familiar with the history of this area but it wouldn't surprise me to find out that the terrace always went by that name, especially when you consider that it overlooks the Zoological and Botanical Gardens. Here is a modern day comparison of the second picture courtesy of Streetview.
