Wellington Railway Station set for upgrade

Passengers at Wellington Railway Station could see an end to the famous ‘piss bridge’ connecting the east & west bound platforms.

The station is due an upgrade under the Access For All programme, as one of 73 that has been deemed suitable for work to improve the station specifically for disabled passengers.

Those passengers who are unable to make it across the bridge, currently have to work their way around town to get to the bus station.

The old wooden bridge used to smell really bad, but in the last couple of years, staff have done a great job of reducing the often eye-watering smell that would greet visitors and commuters alike.

Work is due to be completed by 2024, by which time, the trains using the station might actually be back up to four carriages.

What do you think of railway passenger bridges, in general?
