Trains being missed due to missing bridge at Downham station
Regular commuters from Downham have expressed irritation about the platform design, claiming that it causes them to “miss trains”.
In 2009, a footbridge that allowed passengers to cross the tracks once the barriers were down was removed.
On August 10, 2009, Network Rail submitted a planning application for a new £1.5 million footbridge, describing the foot-crossing as “one of the most dangerous in the country”.
