I am disappointed that, four years after the original crossing closed, there is still no disabled access for passengers to cross between platforms at Lingfield Station.
Working with residents last year, I was pleased that we were able to halt plans for the inappropriate footbridge and instead secure Network Rail’s agreement for a lift between platforms. It is a shame that no progress has been made since and I would urge Network Rail to give this project the priority it deserves. Having recently met with Network Rail to raise this issue, I will continue to press for a solution that works in the interests of all residents of Lingfield.
