The Anonymous Widower

A Bridge Station Over Still Waters

Overamstel station is as the name suggests built on a bridge over the River Amstel.

I didn’t have time to exit the station and explore.

Stations On Bridges

What puzzles me, is that there are so few stations built on a bridge or viaduct over water or perhaps a park, with entrances on both sides.

Only Blackfriars station in London comes to mind.

Although, there are rumours, that Charing Cross will be extended over the Thames to fit in longer platforms.

Surely, if you need a station nearby and a footbridge over a river, isn’t a combined station and footbridge a dual-purpose solution. Especially, if you want a station on both sides of the river.
