Does Walkden’s low platform cause you a problem ?

September 7, 2007

Despite requests from both Northern Rail and GMPTE, Network Rail did not address the problem of the very high step between platform and train during the recent engineering works. FOWS believe this is a serious concern for station users: not only as a major inconvenience for elderly or mobility impaired passengers, but as a safety risk to all.

FOWS and GMPTE are escalating the problem within Network Rail and we would like to hear from you at our email address (friends@walkdenstation.org.uk) if you have experienced difficulty – or even fallen – whilst boarding or disembarking at Walkden.
