New ramp is a step up for Flimby rail passengers
Last updated at 12:20, Friday, 12 July 2013
Work has been completed to raise a section of Flimby railway station’s platform to help passengers get on and off trains.
It was installed by Network Rail after an eight-year campaign and finally came into use on the southbound platform on Wednesday afternoon.
County councillor Keith Little said the hump would allow easier access.
The hump has been created at the far end of the platform to line up with the last carriage of trains which have double doors for pram, wheelchair and mobility scooter access.
