Could We See A Plastic Station?

The Pedesta Bridge, that I talked about in Would You Trust Your Weight On A Thirty Metre Long Plastic Bridge?, has got me thinking.

Look at this picture of the soon-to-be-built Maghull North station.

Maghull North Station Building

The station would appear to be in a cutting with lift towers sticking their heads above the cutting and these are connected by an open walkway to the station building.

Pedesta bridges would surely be a lot easier to slot between the station building and the lift towers., than the traditional heavy steel and glass constructions. From pictures on various web sites, the bridges could even have a roof to protect travellers from the weather.

But why stop at just the bridges?

Could we see prefabricated plastic steps for example?

Anything that cuts the cost of new stations, would surely mean more!
