There is now some progress on delivering the long promised improvements at Alfreton train station to provide level access with the scheme due to be delivered in 2016-17. The plans are to be formulated in the next month or so and Network Rail is in consultation with Department for Transport, train operating companies and Network Rail’s Diversity and Inclusion Team.
I would urge any users of the station – or potential users – to let Network Rail know what scheme they would like ASAP. I would be happy to pass on any comments that people raise with me. We want this doing properly so everyone can use the station.
The project team at Network Rail is planning to present the selected option to the public in an exhibition format once detailed design has been produced in the next month. I will publish the date of the public exhibition once I am aware of it.
