Super Competition - The Answer!

Here is (a carefully selected) part of the official answer as published in a letter to the Bromley News Shopper on June 9th 2004:

"The completed Bromley South forecourt project will improve road safety and enhance the visual appearance of the immediate area...and improve access for the 13,000 passengers using the station every day... This part of the town centre acts as a gateway and it is important we can compete with our competitor retail destinations elsewhere"
Cllor George Taylor, Executive councillor for the Environment

So now you know!
