Harborough rail users
Improving the quality of Market Harborough's rail service
Last September, the DfT announced the next round of Access for All funding for railway stations. Funds from a national allocation of £300m must be bid for by 'local delivery groups', which for Market Harborough means East Midlands Trains and Network Rail. They are including additional accessibility enhancements for our station in their overall bid for the EMT network.
HRU and Harborough MP Neil O'Brien have both submitted letters in support of this bid, which seeks funding towards an additional lift between the booking office and the new northbound platform, plus an accessible toilet on the new southbound platform. The DfT is due to announce its decision in April 2019.
