New Street Station

Yesterday I decided to taken a trip by train and bicycle to take a a look at the newly designed New Street Station.
My journey from Kings Norton station on to platform 8 at New Street was smooth. The escalator up to the concourse level was out of action and I decided I was not going to attempt to carry 16kg of steel up the stairs. I was directed by a helpful young man to the new lift, which to my surprise was half the size of the original lift. This meant that only me, my bicycle and 2 other people could fit in it.
Once out of the lift I head for the bike racks. I was impressed to find a covered, well lit section of the outer station, consisting of 23 Sheffield stands, also covered by CCTV cameras.

What are your thoughts about the station?
