MP raises step-free access to Ruabon station with Minister

* Simon Baynes MP raises his question about Ruabon station in Parliament.

Clwyd South MP Simon Baynes has raised the issue of funding for step-free access at Ruabon train station in the House of Commons.

His question a Wales Office Minister was part of his campaign on local transport issues in his constituency. 

The station at Ruabon currently has two flights of stairs which passengers must use in order to access the platform. 

It is also the only station on the line that does not meet step-free access needs for passengers.

Wales Office Minister David TC Davies MP said in response to Mr Baynes’ question in the Chamber:
“I’d be delighted to discuss step-free access at Ruabon station with the Hon. Gentleman, and I hope that I will be able to give him news of much greater infrastructure projects to rail and road that will be on offer to Wales as soon as this crisis is over.”

Simon Baynes MP said later: “Many representatives, organisations and residents in Ruabon have been campaigning for step-free access at Ruabon Station for several years and I am very pleased to add my support to their campaign. 

"This project is needed to make sure all passengers can access the jobs and leisure opportunities that will make our community an even greater place to live and work. 

"And I’m looking forward to discussing it with Ministers at the Wales Office and the Treasury to see what can be done for Ruabon residents.”
