Merseytravel are promised £28,000 for Rainhill StationThe National Labour Government has awarded Merseytravel £28,000 for improvements to Rainhill Station to include a new ramp (disablement friendly), disabled parking spaces and signage. Under the "Access for All" fund, the village station is one of four on Merseyside to have been identified and awarded funding. Our longstanding battle with Merseytravel over disabled access will only finish when we are happy that the improvements are in place. If there is a shortfall in the money allocate to do all the necessary jobs, we will be lobbying for Merseytravel to fund the remainder.
We, your local councillors, together with Cathy Wilson, ex Parish Council Chair and Disability Discrimination Act Champion, after years of campaigning, look forward to finally see our historic station freely accessable to all.
