Network Rail is to begin upgrades on Vauxhall station in London this week to provide step-free access to all platforms.
Engineers will install four new lifts, four additional openings to ease congestion and new customer information screens.
A staircase leading to the underground station will be reconstructed to align with the new concourse and new canopies will be built at the front of the station and on all platforms. Work is due for completion in summer 2012.
The improvement work is being funded by the government’s £370M Access for All programme, giving better access to 148 stations across the country.
