East Midlands Trains opens new disabled toilet at Loughborough 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 announced the opening of a new disabled toilet at Loughborough station.

The new disabled toilet, which is adjacent to the existing ladies toilet on platform one at Loughborough station, is the first of several accessibility improvements to be completed at the station.  In addition, a number of other stations across the route will also benefit from similar schemes this year.

Commenting, Wayne Kyte, 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 our stations more accessible for the travelling public will be welcomed by our passengers.

“The opening of this fantastic new facility at Loughborough is just one of many station improvement schemes across the country that will make travelling by rail an easier and more pleasurable experience for all passengers.”

Other improvements soon to be completed at Loughborough are the provision of level access from the station to the bus stop, re-profiling and raising the level of the bus stop to provide easier access and improving the visibility of disabled spaces within the car park.
