Here it is: the admission by the station operators at East Croydon that the £22 million Bridge to Nowhere really does lead to… well, nowhere.
The signs appeared in the past fortnight, and are a welcome and belated addition that might go some way to avoid the confusion of those many passengers who traipse up the steep staircase, often with their luggage, only to be forced to come all the way back when they realise that the bridge actually does not have any exits. It is a pity that such signs had not been prepared for when the bridge was opened a month ago.
It is not yet known when work on the station will be completed to open the bridge’s exits, or to provide the step-free access for wheelchair users.
