Slide Stairs to The Trains

Please TfL can we have these on the London Underground? Commuters in Holland can take the newly installed "transfer accelerator" to
quickly descend the station stairs at Overvecht Station and access platforms.

"At night the slide is said to play music from Bach". That's amazing!

Overvecht Station installs  - transfer accelerator

It's part of a series of urban installations designed by HIK Ontwerpers.


Which London stations would you like to see this on? Waterloo seems to be crying out for some speedier way of making it down the stairs!
