Default Subway

I note the overall anticipated cost is 3.5M.

Has a subway been costed? While it would cause very short-term disruption in the construction phase long-term it may be markedly cheaper (no lifts to maintain).

The planning application doesn't appear to be online yet and it is unknown if the footbridge will be protected from the vagaries of our weather!

Most foot bridges are protected from the weather. I am going to assume the high capacity lifts are like those you see in airports or on the Tube.

A subway would likely cost more as a lift would still likely be installed as well.

Corks station entrance which already had a subway cost 3 million for not very much when you think of it.

In theory platforms 2-8 can be split A/B (possibly even a C)

Max is 9 coaches, so 3*3 or 4 + 5

They actually do one or two 5 + 5 per day but more often than not its usually a 4/3 + 5.

They are currently installing the old passenger info screens. Considering how new the main displays at the top of the platforms you have to ask why they didn't just purchase more or have they suddenly gotten this brain wave of splitting.
