Mobility access to Goring and Streatley Station

Volume 561: debated on Wednesday 24 April 2013

I should like to present a petition from more than 1,000 local residents about the railway station at Goring in my constituency.

The petition states:

The Petition of residents of Goring and Streatley and the surrounding area,

Declares that the Petitioners are concerned about the provision of mobility access to Goring and Streatley station.

The Petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urges the Government to support the installation of lifts at Goring and Streatley railway station when the station footbridge is rebuilt in 2013–14 as part of the track electrification programme, thus ensuring that mobility impaired passengers are able to have equal and step-free access to the trains that serve the station.

And the Petitioners remain, etc.
