East Midlands Trains opens new disabled toilets at Spalding and Sleaford

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 new disabled toilets at both Spalding and Sleaford stations.

The new disabled toilets, located inside the waiting room on Platform 1 at Spalding station and on Platform 1 at Sleaford station, are amongst several accessibility improvements to be carried out along the East Midlands Trains route this year.

Commenting, Nigel Carlisle, 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 opening of these new facilities at Spalding and Sleaford 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.”
