Improving the quality of Market Harborough's rail service
This was the latest in a series of drop-in sessions at the station, where people could find out more about the station rebuild scheme. Representatives from Network Rail, EMT and contractors Amey were on hand to answer questions. Though the planned scheme is now well under way, decisions remain to be made about the additional lift, toilets and platform canopies we seek.
Steve Jones and Cliff Taylor of HRU met Phil Baildon of the Harborough Disabled Access Group and HDC Cllr Phil Knowles at the station on 11th October. We discussed the station realignment scheme now work is under way on site, plus current plans and our respective aspirations for disabled access improvements at the station. The meeting was prompted by the recent closure of the barrow crossing, plus assurances received from Network Rail about the design of the new footbridge and lifts at the station. We confirmed that we share the same aspirations to ensure that the station will be fully fit for purpose once complete, including the additional features we seek. A further meeting will be held with Network Rail in due course.
