Coventry Station – 1st May 2018

As I passed through Coventry station, I took these pictures.

It is not the best of stations.

  1. It needs a London-facing bay platform to handle trains from Kenilworth and Leamingtonj stations. But where would you put it?
  2. Where would you also put a bay platform to handle services to Nuneaton?
  3. But the biggest problem, is the stairs in the station.

To emphasise the last point, a lady of perhaps thirty had fallen down the stairs and the only  way, the paramedics could get her out was using an old-fasioned stretcher on the stairs. Where she had fallen didn’t have lift access.

The station may have lots of glass and be a noteworthy 1960s Grade II Listed building, but it needs to be rebuilt to a standard, that is fit for the twenty-first century.
