Access for All - Motspur Park Stn

‘Access for All’ is Network Rail’s terminology for step-free access at many, if not ultimately all, stations in the rail network. Motspur Park Station was identified some while back as a deserving case, so it’s good to report that some progress is being made. Network Rail has now been granted prior approval by Merton Council to carry out extensive improvement works. 

The plan is to provide 3 new lifts, a new (enclosed) footbridge and a new station building. You can look in detail at the proposals on the Council’s Planning database at https://tinyurl.com/2hyzd3z8. The schematic below shows the basic design from the Station Road entrance. 

Currently, the timescale is to complete the work by Spring 2024. At some stage, we believe there may be a public exhibition and consultation on the design. When we have more information on this, we will of course let you know.
