Brand new lifts to both platforms at Hebden Bridge Railway Station are now installed and in service. Full access is now available on both platforms, and in both directions.
The lifts will benefit lots of different people including those using wheelchairs, scooters, pushchairs, bikes; those carrying heavy luggage or who have visual or mobility impairments.
The lifts were campaigned for by Friends of Hebden Bridge Station and other members of the local community, including the Hebden Bridge Disability Access Forum.
Hebden Bridge Disability Access Forum meet next at their monthly meeting on Monday 15th April, 2.30pm, in the Terrace Room, The Town Hall, Hebden Bridge. All disabled people who live in, work in or visit Hebden Bridge and the surrounding parishes are welcome to attend the meeting, or feel free to contact the group at firstname.lastname@example.org about membership.
