Local MSPs back improvements to Stirling train station
Two local MSPs have welcomed efforts to make Stirling railway station more accessible for commuters.
Stirling’s Bruce Crawford and Clacks and Dunblane’s Keith Brown say they’re glad to see work being done to make rail travel easier.
Temporary steps, ramps and handrails have been installed between platforms 2 and 3, until full repair and refurbishment works are completed.
Network Rail now hope to convert the platform 6 to 9 footbridge, in order to make it a fully accessible structure.
Commenting, Bruce Crawford said:
“These measures will make a significant difference in addressing issues of accessibility at Stirling Train Station. I am glad that Network Rail are working to make rail travel easier for people with mobility requirements.
“I look forward to further updates as these plans progress over the course of the next few months.”
Keith Brown added:
“This has been a long running issue at Stirling railway station that has been raised with me by constituents. However, I’m very pleased to see these changes which will address these accessibility issues and ensure appropriate access for all rail users going forward.”
