Wellington Railway Station set for upgrade

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?

    I do not like walking across the bridge on my own, especially at night when the station is quiet!

    Would be better to stop out of towners taking advantage of the free parking. Understand the need for disabled services.
    As an able bodied person who uses the trains regularly, I can only say that in general the service is great. We appear to have many more 4 carriage trains these days. Sometimes a bit busy, especially at peak times, when 6 carriages would be more appropriate.
    The trains also run pretty much on time these days. Credit where it’s due. Too easy to knock.
