Actually, it literally bridges the gap.
I'm sure you've heard the phrase "Watch the Gap," referring to the space between the train and the platform.
The bridge plate is laid on the ground, eliminating this gap. It helps handicapped people when boarding the train, since they would normally get stuck in the gap.


Normally, I would have gone to the end of the platform to avoid that fence and all other obstructions.
In addition, if it were an eastbound, it would have been on the track closest to me, and the fence would not be a problem. But of course, that would be too easy
