South Croydon Station to get better disabled access!

Dear All –

We have recently received the excellent news that South Croydon station is one of the stations just chosen to receive a share of £350 million of Government money to improve disabled access. The works will include lifts to make it easier for disabled people to get across the platforms. 310 stations bid for a share of the investment, but only 50 were successful.  This success follows lobbying of the Government on this by Chris Philp as the local MP at the time and local councillors Danielle Denton, Maria Gatland and Michael Neal.

The investment is confirmed in this Government news release:

This follows a similar project at Coulsdon South station a few years ago.

Survey and design work will now take place and the construction will happen over the next 12-24 months.

I wanted to share this great news for the local area.

With best wishes,

Chris Philp
