A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
This is something I have been thinking for a while. As it keeps niggling in the back of my head I would like to know the view of other residents in the area:
Campaigning to/with First Capital Connect to fit the Bowes Park Station with a disability access in the form of a built in lift from the top of the bridge to the platform. Bowes Park Station operates on a single platform and thus only one lift would be sufficient to cater for both directions of travel. This should be a fairly easy straight forward operation.
I think this would bring great benefits to the local community.
Currently if you have a disability, had an accident, are on crutches or travel with children it is pretty much impossible to access the train station without relying on help from strangers. It being 2015 I find that a very unacceptable situation, although sadly this seems to be a case across the majority of stations across the country. It would be a good chance to try to start a change.
Depending on public opinion it would be interesting to find out if this should be taken further.
