Sunk decorative panels with roll-moulded borders on faces; chamfered impost bands. Narrower section of wall breaks forward above each pier and has a similar sunk panel with dropped keystone. Arch tunnels, voussoirs and spandrels have chamfered rustication. Flat- coped horizontal parapet, defined by 2 stepped bands at track level, breaks forward above piers to form rectangular-plan pedestrian refuges, some now destroyed.
