slide at Overvecht Station

NOW there's no excuse to miss the train at the Overvecht Station in Holland.

The newly installed "transfer accelerator" allows commuters to quickly descend the station stairs and access platforms.
At night the slide is said to play music from Bach.
The creation has designed by HIK Ontwerpers as part of their ongoing urban installations series.
A video posted on YouTube shows the slide in action, with the happy camera operator giving it the thumbs up.
