You're welcome to start a petition.

Many, like Jackie, could see the issue ahead of closure. For others it has perhaps taken their demolition to realise their potential. There have been subways here for over 100 years, their destruction was down to prioritising perceptions over reality (a dangerous methodology in whatever livelihood or context) and then recklessly believing perceptions could only be fixed by demolition.
