Station steps

The design of these steps on one of the main access routes to the station leaves much to be desired. They are precipitous, wide without a central hand rail,  have only one landing and are poorly lit at night.

Also, as can be seen from the photo in bright sunshine, the lips of the treads are hard to pick out. This could lead to a catastrophic stumble, especially for people with poor eyesight. In well-designed stairs contrasting strips are incorporated along or near the edges of the treads.

We could surely have hoped for something better on what is an important pedestrian route to the station for many people.
