4/8. They’ve agreed to (c) Assess what needs to be done by Network Rail to deliver a permanent solution to the Platform 3 ‘waterfall’.
5/8. They’ve secured funding to (d) relocate the ticket office to ground level; move and improve waiting rooms, retail facilities, toilets.
6/8. They’ve secured funding to (e) bring the clock tower back into use and extend the front of the station; bring cycle storage into a hub.
7/8. They’ve secured funding to (f) improve the aesthetics of the station though sand blasting the brickwork. All on old station building.
8/8. These are all welcome, but insufficient; will continue to campaign with @lutoncouncil for a full and proper rebuild of Luton Station.
