Access improvements needed at Hyndland Railway Station

Network Rail has developed proposals to upgrade access to Hyndland Station and currently, the changes to two of the three access routes are being considered by the Planning department.

Entrance at Queensborough Gardens

I attended a meeting today where concerns about current plans were discussed. Specific issues raised by local residents include the omission from the plans of any proposals to improve access and ensure compliance with the Disability Discrimination Act at the entrance to / from Queensborough Gardens.

The subway provides an access route with stairways to the rail platforms. I am supporting efforts by local residents to bring about a review of the proposals through dialogue with Transport Scotland.

It is essential that disability access issues are addressed and there is improved accessibility for all rail passengers to/from Hyndland.
