I think you are a bit premature about the lifts, Amazon.

However, the new bridge does indeed look very good and there's much more room on platform 1 (if not on the 8.09).

I see there's a no smoking sign at the entrance to the station car park - I don't remember it being there before, though perhaps I missed it. Seems a bit excessive, that....

But all transport undertakings be thay bus stops or station car parks are by law covered by the smoking ban thankfully. Hopefully public parks and the streets will be next.

I suspect the police have got more important things to do than arresting people for smoking in the street. And what's the point of banning it in an open space such as the station car park? It's obviously not a health hazard to anyone else, and if, as bluebelly suggests, it's to stop litter, then the solution is to provide waste bins and stop people dropping litter.

So your not concerned then about the role model that adults provide smoking in outdoor places.

Not at all.  Every day children see behaviour which is not a good role model - on television, on the internet, and even in Marple station car park. It's actually an important part of growing up.
