Funding for step-free access at Motspur Park secured

I am delighted that Motspur Park Station is set to benefit from extra funding for step-free access in the Budget.

Since I was first elected, I have been campaigning for step free access at all local stations alongside local Conservatives, especially former local councillors Gilli and Brian Lewis-Lavender.

As soon as I was re-elected in December, I wrote to the Transport Minister to make the case for funding and met with him recently.

This is fantastic news for Motspur Park residents with disabilities and those travelling with young children in pushchairs.

I will also continue to make the case for Raynes Park and other local stations to benefit from better accessibility.
