Over the last five years a further 68 stations were added to the Department’s Access for All programme which provides an accessible route at selected stations. A further £300m has recently been made available to further extend the programme until at least 2024 and we will announce details of which stations will benefit from this in April. Details of individual Access for All projects are available on Network Rail’s website.

This is in addition to access improvements delivered as part of other major projects, such as the 40 Crossrail stations which will be made accessible, and by the industry itself, which must meet current accessibility standards whenever it installs, replace or renews station infrastructure. Details of all of this work is held by the individual organisations and the details of the accessibility features available at all UK stations are published on the National Rail Enquiries website.
