Design Guide - Inventory of Stations

Inventory of Stations

8.1 Introduction

8.1.1 This section provides a station by station record of all outstanding work identified as being required to bring each one into line with the criteria of the Design Guide.

8.1.2 It is intended as a quick reference guide to enable any organisation or individual easily to identify outstanding work that they may wish to rectify.

8.1.3 The items are not listed in priority of importance.

8.1.4 It is envisaged that this section will be updated regularly as new work is undertaken or as new works are identified.

8.1.5 This section is intended purely as a record of outstanding works that relate to the Design Guide and is not a monitor of general maintenance, repair and renewal matters which are the responsibility of Network Rail, the TOC and individual owners.

8.1.6 In cases where architectural details require attention, especially on unrestored buildings, only an outline indication is provided. Exact details of particular windows or doors, for example, would need to be verified on site.
