East Midlands Trains makes accessibility improvements at Long Eaton station

As part of its commitment to spend £250,000 every year on making its stations more accessible for passengers with mobility issues, East Midlands Trains has introduced a number of improvements at Long Eaton station.

The improvements are: 

  • Increasing the width of the entrance to the station, and installing powered bi-folding doors to help improve access into the station 
  • The provision of a new DDA compliant window at the ticket office.

Commenting, Claire Ansley, Route Manager for East Midlands Trains said:

“We want to make it as easy as possible for people to use East Midlands Trains services, and I know that our commitment to spend a quarter of a million pounds each year on making stations more accessible for the travelling public will be welcomed by our passengers.

“The accessibility improvements at Long Eaton station are just two of many station improvement schemes across the country that will make travelling by rail an easier and more pleasurable experience for all passengers.”
