Fight to Improve Metro Station Access

December 2, 2010 10:02 PM

The new Coalition Government has given Nexus the money it needs to improve the Metro - including refurbishment of Walkergate Metro Station.

Over the last few years, many residents have told the FOCUS Team that the biggest problem they have is in using the existing steps and ramps. The steps are too steep, the ramps are too slippy in wet weather and there is only a handrail on one side of the ramps and steps.

The FOCUS Team have started a campaign to get Nexus to sort out these access problems alongside the other work planned at the Station.

Cllr Pauline Allen (pictured) said: "Now Nexus has the money to improve the Metro, they have no excuse not to make access to the Station safe for everyone to use."
