Better access at Meols Station as work begins on new lift

After years of work and pressure by local residents and local Conservative Councillors, we are pleased to announce that work has begun this month to install a lift at Meols Station.

Rail users and local councillors have been asking for improvements at the station, after complaints that some people including elderly rail users, disabled people and parents with prams were unable to gain access to the platform using the flight of steps.

The new lift will provide improved access to the station platform for those with reduced mobility.

Funding was agreed last year and works are now beginning to install the necessary infrastructure at the station.

Local Conservative council candidate Alison Wright said “It is good to see the needs of commuters and residents are being recognised. This lift will allow even more people to make use of our transport network and get to work, shopping and leisure opportunities.”

Hoylake and Meols Councillor Andrew Gardner added “thanks to the hard work of local campaigners, Meols Station will now be accessible for everyone”.
