Access for All

The Access for All scheme is a major programme by Network Rail, improving accessibility at train stations nationwide by installing lifts, footbridges and ramps. The programme objective is to increase the ease of access at railway stations not only for the disabled and elderly, but also for passengers travelling with children or carrying heavy or awkward luggage.

At WEC Rail, we have been designing, manufacturing and installing new Footbridges since 2005. Many of our Footbridges include features such as lowered handrails, ramps and automatic lifts with an audible tone to support the Access for All scheme.

In 2006 Derek Twigg, Rail Minister for the Government Department for Transport (DfT), stated that most station infrastructure dates back to the 19th Century and it is necessary to work towards providing a more inclusive environment for all travellers. To tackle the issues, the government has committed £375 million to deliver a programme of access improvements which will last through to 2015.
