UIN 77357, tabled on 18 November 2021

Durrington-on-Sea is a category B2 station, which means that there is step-free access to both platforms and technically a step-free route between platforms. However, the step-free route between the two platforms is quite impractical as it is 0.6 miles via a nearby road-bridge on Shaftesbury Avenue. This is approximately a 12-minute journey for someone walking and the bridge is steep. Govia Thameslink Railway does not treat B2 category stations as accessible.
