Odd how they installed Orange dot matrix instead of white. They are white at Gloucesters new entrance so it must not be to so with matching?

That new screen outside platform is really great, need to do the rest, be much better.

Agreed, they look great at Stonehouse and Yate as well.

New ticket gates opening at Temple Meads



On Monday 17 December, Bristol Temple Meads will celebrate the opening of 14 new ticket gates for passengers.

More people than ever are travelling through the station each day and this number is only set to grow. The new ticket gates will add capacity, helping make it quicker and easier for passengers to get in and out of the station at peak times.

The new ticket gates are placed either side of the existing gates to the station and will be operational on weekdays from 7.00am until 10.00am and 4.00pm until 7.00pm.

Passengers will be able to enter and exit the station directly from the Friary through new ticket gates at Bonapartes Bar (shown below, right of existing exit).

There are also new, exit-only ticket gates being opened at Queen Anne Gate that will take passengers out onto Station Approach next to the British Transport Police office (shown below, to left of existing exit).

What's happened to the side entrance to Bonapartes? Is there a fenced entrance to the door, similar to that opposite for access to the staff facilities.

If not then said door would have to be locked lest walking through Bonapartes bypasses the gateline.

Dunno.  And why was "The Reckless Engineer" renamed "The Sidings".   Does it relate to political correctness to encourage technical people to take care, or is it an indication that it's managers and accountants who run the railways these days with those with detailed knowledge of how to work things out on the side tracks?

Would I think be changed and made into a fire exit only. The merchantman was in the days of travellers fare, with british rail sandwiches.

The plan in my post is misleading - the gateline is to the north of the side entrance to Bonaparte's, as you can see if you look at 17/05690/LA (or indeed my first photo in http://www.firstgreatwestern.info/coffeeshop/index.php?topic=10737.msg251920#msg251920)

You would need to write to someone at British Rail for an answer.

Looks like its before the gateline on right side of station, so no problem then.

The gate line by Bonapartes will be of less use once the Train shed is in use again as that will do away with a large pedestrian flow from what is now the side entrance,I would think.
