Recently Grant Shapps has announced a £20 million funding boost for accessibility improvements for 124 stations across the country - I am disappointed that Beeston Station in Broxtowe has not been selected as one of the stations, as it needs investment in accessibility.
Therefore, I wrote to Chris Heaton-Harris MP, the Minister of State for Transport responsible for Rail. I asked for a meeting to discuss this situation, as we deserve the funding to improve passenger journeys for those that find it difficult to use stairs.
I then met with Chris to continue putting forward this case, and I am reassured that all will be done to make sure that Beeston Station is not forgotten. As promised during my campaign, I will always champion Broxtowe and what it needs.
