To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, if he will prioritise Northwich Railway Station for the Access For All programme in respect of the rebuild of part of the station following its recent collapse.

Answered on

28 June 2021

The Office of Rail and Road is currently undertaking an investigation into the recent collapse, which will report back to Network Rail shortly. Whenever any work is carried out at a station by the industry when they install, replace or renew infrastructure, it must comply with the relevant accessibility standards.

Also, I shall be bidding for further rounds of funding for Access for All schemes in the forthcoming Spending Review.
