But if it is a given that the roof has to go to make the improved services work, could Southwark planners not have insisted on a new roof. Perhaps over the whole station to make the conditions on the through track platforms a little more humane. St Pancras does not have to put up with just canopies and windy wet platforms although admittedly at St Pancras we we have to provide for the French with their higher expectations!!??
