I guess this will eradicate the OOU gents toilets on the upside too,it's quite vintage in there. At least theres some care in the rebuilding. Lots of others like Totnes look like complete carbuncles.

Certainly looks that way. I think it would be better if the toilets and other passenger facilties were all relocated to the up side, as that's where the vast majority of people are waiting for their trains.

Looks nicely sympathetic to the original station, a very nice design.

Certainly long overdue, though there step free access to both sides its a long way around from platform to platform via the roadbridge! Teignmouth needs the same too, though doubt it could be done with anything other than a horrible Totnes style bridge

I usually stay at The Grand opposite & it will still be just as easy to walk over the Hennapyn road bridge to get to the up side platform.

Yes but not everyone is staying there
