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."
