Oliver has again nominated Radlett Station for Access for All Funding to install much needed lifts at the station.
The Access for All funding scheme is funded by the Government in order to carry out improvements and upgrades on our railways across the UK.
At Radlett Station, rail users must climb the many stairs up to the footbridge to access the trains. This is increasingly challenging for rail users who use wheelchairs, cannot climb stairs or even those who travel with prams and luggage.
The two neighbouring stations, Elstree & Borehamwood and St Albans City are accessible already, with Radlett being the odd one out.
Oliver said: ‘Like many local residents, I have long been frustrated by the poor accessibility and lack of lifts at Radlett Station.
At the beginning of this year, I once again nominated Radlett for this year’s Access for All Funding and I am glad that the Department for Transport and Network Rail are currently assessing all nominated stations and will be in a position to announce successful stations later this year.’
Oliver added: ‘I have always campaigned to improve our local transport networks and I think everyone, regardless of their accessibility needs, should be able to use them.’
