The West Barnes Lib Dem Focus Team has been informed about the timeline to make Motspur Park Station fully accessible – with works planned to start in late 2022.
On 13 July, we were told: “The outline design stage is underway and due to be complete in March 2022. Detailed design should be completed in November 2022, with work on site due to commence shortly after.”
This follows a long fight to get action on improvements for local stations by residents and the Liberal Democrat Focus team.
West Barnes Cllr Hina Bokhari said:
“We’re so pleased that this is now being done – it will be a real improvement for local people. We were shocked before the last election when the area’s then Conservative councillors went round telling people nothing could be done that Motspur Park could only be made step-free if and when Crossrail 2 went ahead. That complacency probably explains why it’s taken so long.”
