Petition Provide funding to make all railway stations disabled accessible, access to all
I had Polio as a child and have to walk with a crutch these days, I also use a mobility scooter, if I want to use my scooter at my local Railway Station, I can’t as no lift, help or ramp is available to allow me to get on the train.
With 5G and HS2 on the Horizon (with the cost of £55.7 Billion), I find it unacceptable that I cannot join the rest of the railway network that is accessible. I am not the only disabled person to be in the position over the whole of the network. I can get help, but this will put at least an hour on both outward and inward journeys, so I can't travel as and when I want.
