I am committed to improving access at all stations. Last year we published the Inclusive Transport Strategy which sets out what we are doing to improve access across all transport modes. As part of this, we extended our Access for All programme with an additional £300m of funding. This provides accessibility improvements over and above those required by the rail industry itself. Stations are nominated by the rail industry bodies who can work alongside local authorities and Members of Parliament. Stations are selected for funding through a prioritisation and assessment process. Sandbach was not nominated for this funding.
We will continue to seek further opportunities, and funding, to make more improvements.
