It was busy down at the Green Park bridge yesterday, as I also had a check on the progress (?).

Are they going to remove one strip of tactile paving? I can forsee confusion otherwise. Can't understand the emergency exits, from the bridge it looks like you have a long ramp followed by steps, not exactly wheelchair friendly. It might all look sensible from another angle.

In the emergency planning a phrase "position of relative safety" is used this allows for all people of differing mobility to get away from danger, this does not mean they can self-evacuate completely.  These "position of relative safety" will be known to the RIO (Rail Incident Officer) and agreed with the local Fire and Rescue and will be in the station evacuation plan
