How costly would it be for major interchange stations such as Crewe to put on every platform a notice arrowing the way to the nearest live information board?

On a short connection time it would be a great help to be able to see exactly where to go to find out which platform you need. I mention Crewe in particular as I have swanned around there for ages sometimes, looking for a departure board, most of which seem to be on the side of out-of-the-way walls. I'm pretty wised up now, but when I was new to all this rail travel I used to get in quite a panic!

It just needs a large arrow with Live Information signed on it.

When they changed from TV style screens to LED displays at Stockport I had to look around for ages to find them, even though I knew exactly where the old ones were.
