Hi One of those idle moments looking out of the window at Vauxhall got me thinking (always dangerous). Right now, platforms 7/8 are the narrowest island of the four, yet see very high passenger volumes. Platforms 5/6 are wider, yet are on the fast lines so don't see any trains stopping except during disruption and engineering work. My idle speculation was whether or not 5/6 could be demolished, the down fast and up slow slewed over and 7/8 made wider. This would give wider stairways, possibly including escalators, and a wider platform for circulation. Obviously this would then mean that Vauxhall couldn't be served if the slow lines were blocked, but on balance I wonder if that's a price worth paying for more space for the vast majority of the time? Also depends if there's the space down below to take a fast flow of passengers, I guess. And the construction would involve a lot of disruption. Stupidest idea in the world or worth considering?
