To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what progress he has made in assessing the merits of allocating Access for All funding for the purposes of making Ledbury Station step-free.
For the Main Access for All programme, we received nominations for more than 300 stations, including Ledbury, and in April we announced the 73 stations that would benefit from the funding. Unfortunately Ledbury was not selected as its comparatively low passenger usage made it difficult to justify its inclusion ahead of other busier stations in the region.
For the Mid-Tier Access for All programme, nominations were required by 18 October but there was no nomination for Ledbury station.
However, the Inclusive Transport Strategy sets out what we are doing to improve access across all transport modes, and we will continue to seek further opportunities, and funding, to make more improvements.
