No sense

THE financial insanity which is endemic in the bureaucracy which governs this country continues unabashed despite the government’s austerity programme if the ongoing fiasco of Alnmouth Station services is to be believed.

The Edinburgh side car park is, at last, going to be opened. It is to be serviced for the disabled, I understand, by a new electronic lift system which will have an unpriced annual cost.

Does common sense not dictate that the existing over bridge should be extended into the new disabled-friendly car park where both the able and disabled can access both the car park and the northbound platform at no annual cost.
