Step Free Access at Flitwick Station
Posted Wednesday, 17 July 2019 at 10:39

On Wednesday I’ll be holding a debate in Parliament about installing lifts at Flitwick station to enable step-free access to the platforms.

I will be calling on the Government to act now to help those people who are disabled, older, less mobile or just less able to lug prams or heavy suitcases up and down the station stairs.

The Access for All scheme gave hope to many of us that the end was in sight. Instead we saw the money invested in stations with fewer passengers, lower growth and lower costs for the upgrade programmes. Flitwick, it seems, was just a challenge too far.

If the Access for All scheme is serious about enabling disabled people to access travel services, even when it’s difficult to do so, its terms of reference must be changed. If it only intends to tackle the low-hanging fruit then we need a new scheme specifically to tackle the harder challenges such as Flitwick.
