As I have also mentioned in another thread, I second the motion for ramps. These are part built already anyway and would IMO be better and cheaper than lifts. In fact the effort spent on putting in temporary stair access is probably comparable.

The idea of widening the pavement is also good, especially if it allowed space for pick up and drop down. Cars currently wait in crazy places (on junctions, zebra crossings) to meet people arriving at the station. A decent architect could probably devise something with the space available.

A general observation: we are paying, year on year, above inflation fare increases purportedly to pay for investment in infrastructure. I do not think it is constructive to shoot down ideas on the basis of imagined cost when they are being discussed on a forum.

To AndrewR: I wholeheartedly support your initiative to make it easier to get on or off the trains. The problem as I see it is actually to do with the camber of the track as it curves. I suspect it will be expensive to address, but as I mention above that is no reason not to push the idea.
