My officials and Transport Scotland discuss railway station accessibility at least monthly as part of the governance of the Access for All programme. We have made a further £300m available for Access for All and the Scottish Government have nominated a number of stations from across Scotland for this new funding. We intend to announce the successful stations in April next year.
