Yes I'm sure the staff do it just for fun, so they can get lots of abuse from the public.
Quite probably. What other reason is there for it if not a real overcrowding problem? Perhaps you work there and could give us inside knowledge?
On most of the mornings when they restrict it, the platforms/lower councourse are nowhere near to capacity, yet someone has taken a decision to restrict access to the Northern gate line (sure that's what they call it).
Only on a handful of occasions have I actually got through the gates and felt gratified to know that it had actually been closed due to REAL overcrowding, rather than a figment of someone's imagine.
