I know… how about re building Ryde Esplanade Station and Bus Station. It could certainly stand some improvement. Perhaps it could become sort of a… Gateway To The Island….


Personally i’d prefer it if they rebuilt and restored the station to its victorian condition; it would be far more appropriate and, crucially, achievable.


Thanks, Chris, my thoughts exactly. The shop fronts opposite are being restored as far as possible, so why not the station?


I’m sorry, but if the rail-station and interchange was done to that standard, I think I’d rather have it as it is- those shop fronts look awful.


Perhaps they could paint it green and call the Gateway to Eco Island, then again maybe just promise to eventually paint it green at some unspecified point in the future
