The current advice to keep left going up and down the stairs is ludicrous and is therefore largely ignored.

For example, if people getting off west-bound trains walked up the stairs on the left then it would be difficult for those on the stairs to carry on walking down. And if an eastbound train came in at the same time it would create more congestion and queues on the platform.

Many people also hurtle down the centre to get trains, which is one of many reason why I find the removal of the central rails creates more risk, rather than being an effective safety measure as TfL claim. And since overground eastbound trains stopped further up the platform, the risk of charging passengers causing an accident on the platform has also increased.

I was told by a railway inspector at least 15 years ago (long before TfL took over) that Gunnersbury station wouldn't have got a safety certificate even then, before the business park was fully underway. TfL's current complacency and the way its 'keep left' advice suggest it fails to understand how people actually behave, indicates a similar failure.
