This is the latest update from Southern Railway on the installation of gates at the foot of the stairs on Perry Vale:
Enabling works for the new gateline on platform two commenced on Wednesday 26 November and were expected to last for three weeks. During this period the side gate on platform 2 is closed. After that time limited access will be available. All works will be completed by late January and the gates will then go live. Once operational the gates will be left open unstaffed from 21.00hr to end of service as the entrance will be remotely closed by our control centre.
Why do these things take so long? There are often days when no workers have been. This is a major inconvenience, not to mention danger do to the large number of passengers cramming on the stairs. I am now forced to go under the subway where my friend was mugged. Not happy about the lack of speed of building works.
