Walkway Alley looking eastward, December 2018

Walkway Alley is an extremely narrow 17-metre (55.7 ft) long pedestrian alley in the north of Új Repülő, in the Australissian state of New Eiffel. It runs by the New Eiffel-United Kingdom North Border, and behind New Eiffel School – the only school in New Eiffel – and Jimbo's Gym – a health fitness club – to the south. It contains roughly 20.9 m² (224 ft) of public space, of which 11.2 m² (120 ft) is privately owned, being used mostly for storage. The alley was officially designated as Walkway Alley by the Minister of Transportation on 23 December 2019. Though it is infrequently used by the public, the alleyway has appeared in numerous New Eiffelic films.

History

The alley in April 2021, looking west

With the construction of the school in October 2017, a narrow alleyway was formed between the building and a fence. Historically, the alley ended after it headed westward for 12.1-metres (39.6 ft), omitting its southward course to the New Eiffel Main Route 1. However, that part would be officially included in the alley on 23 December 2019, when it was officially designated as Walkway Alley by the Minister of Transportation. It was officially designated alongside two other alleyways, the close-by South Alley in Southern Új Repülő, and New Eiffelic Entrance in New Leeds. Formerly located in the United Kingdom, the alley has continuously been the territory of New Eiffel since the foundation of Republic of New Finland in January 2018, through the Kingdom of New Finland in June and onto the Principality of New Eiffel in August until its dissolution in November 2020, when the territory was seceded back to the United Kingdom. The territory would later be annexed as a state by Australis in January 2021.

Usage and geography

Walkway Alley is an extremely narrow 17-metre (55.7 ft) long pedestrian alley located in the north of Új Repülő in the Australissian state of New Eiffel. Following its course – which runs on a dirt path for its entirety – the alleyway heads westward for 12.1-metres (39.6 ft), before turning south and terminating at the New Eiffel Main Route 1 – a road for cyclists – after a final 4.9-metres (16 ft). It contains roughly 20.9 m² (224 ft) of public space, of which 11.2 m² (120 ft) is privately owned, being used mostly for storage. The alleyway is not necessary, being a longer alternative route to using the Main Route 1 to get to the Eiffel-United Kingdom West Border, and is thus mainly used for recreational walking. Though, it has been used for storage by private owners of parts of the alleyway. It has also appeared in a number of New Eiffelic films.
