Government funding to make stations accessible to all

Forty-two train stations to benefit from share of £100 million Access for All funding.

Forty-two train stations in England, Scotland and Wales will receive a share of a £100 million government fund to improve access for disabled passengers, Rail Minister Baroness Kramer announced today (29 April 2014).

The stations will benefit from improved access as part of the Access for All scheme. Previous work under the scheme has included improvements such as new ramps, lifts or tactile paving.

Rail Minister Baroness Kramer said:

We are transforming our railways through record levels of investment and improving accessibility at stations is an important part of that.

These improvements will make a real difference to the lives of disabled passengers and those with limited mobility, allowing them to get to work and pursue leisure activities more easily. That’s good news for them and good news for the economy.
