Croy station

Work begins to improve accessibility at Croy station

Network Rail has announced work has started on a £3.1m project to improve accessibility at Croy station in North Lanarkshire.

Over the next nine months Network Rail will install a new footbridge and lifts at the station making it easier for people with impaired mobility.

The footbridge and lifts will also make station access easier for those travelling with luggage or bicycles.

Croy station lies on the Edinburgh-Glasgow route and the footbridge will provide step free access from the entrance to the Edinburgh bound platform.

Michael McArthur, Network Rail’s Project Manager for the accessibility work spoke on how improved accessibility will enhance the passenger experience.

Mr McArthur said: “The bridge being built at the station delivers modern standards of access for those travelling to or from Croy on a day-to-day basis.

“[The new bridge] will improve the travelling experience for passengers.

“The new bridge and lifts will help everyone in the community access services at Croy station easily as part of our efforts to enable even more people to travel by train.

“Delivering step-free access at stations to open up our network is one important way in which we are improving the overall experience of travelling on Scotland’s railway.”

Funding for the project has been provided by the Access for All scheme.

Access for All is a rolling investment programme aimed at improving access at stations for those with impaired mobility.
