Haydons Road Step Free Access

704 of 750 signatures

While the eastbound platform at Haydons road station can be accessed without using steps, the westbound platform can't. This is problematic for many residents - especially the elderly, people with disabilities or limited mobility, and families. When planning permission was granted for the development at 1 Caxton road, one of the conditions was that step free access to the platform would be granted via the development. However, no progress has been made as the developer, Merton Council, Govia Thameslink & Network Rail have yet to agree the necessary modifications to the station and means of access.

The work needed to enable step free access in both directions at Haydons Road station is minimal, and it would enable more residents to use public transport. We're calling on Govia Thameslink to immediately allow this work to go ahead.

We, the undersigned, call upon the developer, Merton Council, Govia Thameslink & Network Rail to agree the modest changes necessary to implement step free access to the westbound platform of Haydons Road train station via 1 Caxton Road, as per the original planning permission.
