We are committed to improving station accessibility and have continued with the Access for All programme which has delivered more than 160 accessible routes at stations. We will be making further funding available in the next Rail Control Period (2019-24) and will confirm the way in which we will deliver this as soon as possible.

For schemes such as Coventry to be considered for this future funding it will need strong support from the industry. A proportion of third party funding would also help to weight the station’s business case.
