Richard Tracey commends increased accessibility in South London’s rail infrastructure

Posted Posted by in Blog   shareShare2013

Richard Tracey Assembly Member for Merton and Wandsworth this Thursday attended the formal opening of Earlsfield station. Earlsfield station is part of Network Rail’s critical new moves to improve step-free access in South London. The station includes two new lifts as part of a £5.6 million scheme to improve the facilities and accessibility of the station.

Richard Tracey AM comments;

"This is a great improvement in accessibility at a key commuter station for the Capital. I hope it leads to more and more people finding it possible to use the rail network not just for their journeys to work but at other times too through step-free access elsewhere to other services.

"That's important to help reduce congestion on the system and to ensure the best possible use of available capacity."
