Disabled passengers, parents with buggies – anyone who can’t use stairs – can’t get onto the London-bound platform at Headcorn. Some people are going in the wrong direction as far as Ashford to get to a station with a lift.
It’s a busy station and there’s lots of people calling for disabled access, Along with local councillors, I helped rally public support for the Station’s bid to receive a share of a £300 million Access for All fund to improve disabled access. Unfortunately the bid was not successful. I want to know why.
