Working group of Hebden Royd Town Council, Hebden Bridge Disability Access Forum, received the very welcome news that the new lifts to both platforms at Hebden Bridge Railway Station are now completed and in service. Full access is now available on both platforms, and in both directions.
The lifts will benefit lots of different people including those using wheelchairs, scooters, pushchairs, bikes; those carrying heavy luggage or who have visual or mobility impairments.
With special thanks to the Friends of Hebden Bridge Station and other members of the community for their tireless campaigning over a period of many years to make this happen.
Can you help to improve access to life in the Hebden Bridge Area? Hebden Bridge Disability Access Forum, meet next at their monthly meeting on Monday 15th April, 2.30pm, in the Terrace Room, The Town Hall, Hebden Bridge.
All disabled people who live in, work in or visit Hebden Bridge and the surrounding parishes are welcome to attend the meeting, or feel free to contact the group at firstname.lastname@example.org about membership.
