New Escalator Cabot Place

Cabot Place New Escalator
Far be it from me to be one to judge the cost/benefit of urban shopping centre design, but in this tiny space we already *have* six escalators, four of which connect this floor alone (you really can't move for escalators - actually, that doesn't make a lot of sense)...but do we *really* need a fifth? And if we *really* were to need a fifth escalator, wouldn't it make sense to put a bit nearer the DLR entrance (where it stands a chance of getting crowded) rather than at the opposite end of the dome? *Holds hands up in surrender*...

Update - they have now started building a sixth one!!
