Your views: Which Bromley stations require improved disability access?
BROMLEY residents are being asked for their opinions as stations in the borough are considered for improvements in access for disabled people.
The Access for All programme, introduced by the Department for Transport, has received an additional £100m in funding and will now run until 2019.
The programme, which has already seen improvements to Bromley South and Orpington, is now considering Bickley, Chislehurst, Clock House, Petts Wood, Shortlands and St Mary Cray for an upgrade.
And Bromley Mobility Forum is encouraging local residents to come forward and make a case for these stations.
Deirdre Brockhouse, Chair of Bromley Mobility Forum, said: "Train stations such as Bromley South that have already benefited from the Access for All programme have had a very positive impact on people's lives.
"So we need to make the case for these other stations in our borough to be similarly transformed.
"Life for elderly people, the disabled and those with mobility issues can be extremely isolating, accessible transport is therefore essential to enable them to lead full, active and independent lives.
"More accessible train stations across our Borough can only enhance people's quality of life and we appreciate the opportunity for any input that our forum can have into helping to achieve this"
