I had a very useful meeting with Secretary of State for Transport and my constituency neighbour, Mark Harper MP, about the need for greater accessibility at Stroud Railway Station.
I have been campaigning on this this for a few years alongside some brilliant councillors from Stroud Town Council and a local disability campaigner called Christian.
These steps are a nightmare for many people and the alternative of walking down and around via the main road is no better for people who are disabled, elderly or even those with heavy bags or young children. I have struggled with these steps myself whilst pregnant and out with my toddler in the buggy!
I have also spoken to GWR about this issue and I will be continuing my campaign on this until change is made.
