Although I appreciate the work ON the station, concourse, travel centre, I am most appauled at the plans concerning the taxi rank, the walkways and this random stupid sculpture on the station front.
Back to topic, the present path isn't really accessible or usable as it's cut off just next to the carp park and again at the northside of the present taxi loop next to the metal wall-fencing.
I would have chipped in Captain Scarlet, had I been aware of this thread!
for what it's worth,
I vehemently dislike the new design for the taxi -boarding area.
Inside the station, the plans for the new concourse and ticket office IMO, will be an inconvenience to any passenger that has luggage, pushchairs, mobility difficulties, or is disabled, becaue you have to traverse the whole length of the station, virtually, to get between the ticket office and the trains.
currently, pedestrian access is difficult from the howard street sie of the station, becsue of all the works, it's a nightmare. Its a real bind!
