Dorchester West Railway Station, Access Ramp
Provision of an access ramp from Williams Avenue opposite the County Hospital. Includes limited disabled parking / drop off point, to gain access to the northbound platform.
We have been working with Network Rail to deliver this scheme. Both parties are now completing the necessary legal agreements to enable Network Rail to build the ramp.
It is hoped that the work will be completed over the autumn of 2017.
Create an access ramp to enable all users, particularly wheelchair users, full access to the northbound platform. Currently there is only a stepped access.
