That certainly doesn't look like the most beautiful rendering (even the cars look ugly), but they've got to do something. Flitwick is utterly dominated by the station, and the station is no longer fit for purpose. Just a couple of examples:

1. I'm told you sometimes cannot find a space in the car park on a weekday after 7am.
2. If you're going to London and get the bus from Ampthill, you need to get off the bus outside the post office, cross the main road, go down the stairs to platform 4, get someone to open a gate so you can get to the ticket desk or machine, then go back through the gate, back up the stairs, then down the stairs to platform 1 (or occasionally platform 3). It's all a huge hassle, especially if you have luggage, kids, or limited mobility.
3. Bus times are not co-ordinated with train times in any meaningful way.

My son goes later than that and manages to park.

You are right sure there is loads of room for improvement - just wasn't sure that was it!
