Rail Station Accessibility Audit Report Consultation
In May 2011 West Berkshire Council commissioned an accessibility audit of all railway stations within the district. Following a consultation with First Great Western, Network Rail and Parish Councils the final report is available.
The Audits covered all West Berkshire Stations (Aldermaston, Hungerford, Kintbury, Midgham, Mortimer, Newbury Racecourse, Newbury, Pangbourne, Thatcham and Theale) highlighting accessibility improvements needed at each station.
Following the consultation the final report is now available West Berkshire Council Railway Station Audit [173kb].
In improvements suggested in the report will help the Council work with First Great Western and Network Rail to provide suitable accessibility improvements at West Berkshire Stations, but guiding funding allocations and providing information for bids when grants and other funds for station improvements becomes available, including the allocation of S106 money.
The report will be updated annually to take into account works completed, and those planned for the next financial year.
