Network Rail carries out £1.6M Long Eaton station face ‘lift’

Lifts are being installed at a cost of £1.6M on both platforms at Long Eaton station, in Derbyshire, by Network Rail to improve accessibility.

The work is due to start by the end of the month and is being funded by the Department for Transport’s Access for All scheme.

Erewash Borough Council sold Network Rail a small piece of land so that it could install the lifts, which are scheduled to be operational in the summer.

“This project will bring real benefits to passengers – particularly those with luggage, pushchairs or mobility issues,” said Network Rail general manager Kevin Preece.“We will do all we can to keep disruption to the minimum throughout.”
