For three months over summer, the footbridge at Epping station is closed whilst it’s being repaired. This means a change of what you’d normally have to do at Epping station to get to and from trains.
Platform 2 is the one on the west side of the station, and there’s a footbridge over to Platform 1. With that closed, they’ve now opened up the side entrance all the time to allow people to enter or exit that way, and use the second footbridge (handy that it’s there!) that is not part of the station.
This could mean you arrive at Epping, enter the station, and then have to leave again and walk round when you find the next train is from platform 1, and not 2. And if you’re arriving on Platform 1, you have to exit the station by the side entrance, and then walk over the public footbridge – not the one inside the station – to exit. Things should be back to normal by September,
