The objective of this report is to:
1) To set out the position on station accessibility – there are still a large proportion of stations in the North without good accessibility; and
2) To set out an approach to securing greater funding and investment in the North.
The work proposed includes not only the longstanding issue of step-free access for Persons with Reduced Mobility (PRMs), but a wider definition of accessibility which includes the need for clear customer information systems (CIS) and audible public address (PA) announcements.
