From Journeycheck

Gloucester: Lifts out of order

The lifts will be out of order between Platform One and Platform Two from 13/10/2016 until the end of the day at Gloucester station.

Aren't platforms 1 and 2 in fact one long single platform?  Even more strangely have they really been out of order for more than three years?

Apparently the footbridge to Gloucester Eastgate is also closed until further notice.

Things take longer to happen than you think they will, and then they happen faster than you thought they could.

Whilst waiting for a train at Pinhoe this morning, the delightful lady announcer - having requested our attention - politely advised customers to hold the handrail when using the stairs, or use the lift provided during icy conditions.

Pinhoe station has not had a footbridge - let alone a lift - since ceasing its original life back in 1966!

For a short while Oldfield Park had a footbridge whilst the steps leading to platform 1 were demolished and replaced with the disabled access ramp you see today. I think it was around the early 2000s.
