Press Release: Wellington railway station misses out on millions of pounds of investment again!

Press Release
Mike Ion, a Telford and Wrekin Borough Councillor is writing to London Midland and the Department for Transport to ask why, yet gain, Wellington railway station has missed out on Government funding to make stations more easily accessible under a new ‘Access for All’ Mid-Tier programme. £37.5 million has been made available for upgrades to stations including new lifts, ramps, raised “easy access humps” on platforms as well as new accessible toilets.
Councillor Ion said:
‘Once again the hundreds of thousands of travellers who use Wellington railway station have been treated as second class citizens. I cannot believe that there are stations in this region that are in greater need of investment, particularly in relation to improving disabled access and facilities. I will be writing to both London Midland and to the Department for Transport to ask why Wellington has, once gain, not been seen as a priority for much needed and long overdue investment.’
