To ask the Scottish Government which railway stations are to be given improved accessible facilities for disabled people from the Access for All fund in 2019.
Answered by: Michael Matheson 29 August 2018
At the end of July 2018, the Department for Transport (DfT) formally launched the Inclusive Transport Strategy and invited Transport Scotland to nominate stations to be considered for future Control Period 6 Access for All funding.
Transport Scotland is currently working to identify which stations will be submitted for nomination. It is expected that the DfT will conclude the selection process early in 2019 and a list of the stations that have successfully secured funding will then be confirmed and advertised.
