I've noticed tonight that the stand doors at Gateshead Interchange are now 'locked down' and won't open unless there's a bus at the stand. I'm sure there is a safety reason behind this I.e. to prevent passengers from standing on the kerb but surely this creates more problems than it's worth? I.e an influx of passengers rushing through the door when a bus arrives and also in the event of an evacuation if there's a fire etc. What was the reason behind this does anyone from up here know?
