Walkden prioritised for disabled access improvementsNovember 18, 2010
Walkden station moved a step closer to the important goal of full disabled accessibility when a meeting of GMITA’s Policy and Resources Committee placed it 4th highest priority in its development plans. The prioritisation – based on the station’s ever-increasing “footfall” – places Walkden ahead of dozens of stations across the Greater Manchester area.
Unfortunately this doesn’t provide a guaranteed delivery date as the scheme is dependent on continued DfT funding – something that cannot be taken for granted in this age of government cuts.
For full details see the GMITA’s Policy and Resources Committee meeting minutes from 19th November.
