Improve the access to Wallasey Village Station

The Department for Transport has recently announced more money to improve access to railway stations under the 'Access for All' programme.

Since the programme was launched in 2006, more than £500m has been invested to deliver accessible routes, including step free access, at over 200 stations. A further 1,500 stations have also benefitted from smaller scale access improvements.

The latest phase sees £300m made available to stations between now and 2024.

Councillors Paul Hayes, Ian Lewis and Lesley Rennie have met with Mersytravel to see whether Wallasey Village Station could be included in a bid for a share of this money. 

Many of the people living nearby tell us they can't use the station because they have prams or buggies or use wheelchairs.  People with mobility problems also have difficulty climbing the steps.

So far, Merseytravel has said they will not include Wallasey Village Station but have, instead, decided to include stations in Birkenhead and Liverpool.
