Dunne welcomes progress in Ludlow Station upgrade

Philip Dunne MP has welcomed progress in improving accessibility at Ludlow Station with a new lift between platforms. 

After Mr Dunne successfully lobbied government to provide funding to improve accessibility across the platforms, work started last October to improve accessibility at Ludlow station. Over the next three weeks, work will begin to lift the new lift shaft and operating equipment. 

The work will install a brand-new, fully accessible lift onto the existing footbridge on platform 1. This is funded by the Department for Transport as part of the Access for All programme. 

Mr Dunne said:

“I worked hard to ensure Ludlow was included in the Access for All funding, meeting Transport Ministers to make the case. So I am very pleased to see progress in putting in the new lift in Platform 1, which will improve accessibility across platforms for rail users from Ludlow. I look forward to seeing it completed in due course.”

To keep the public and construction staff safe Network Rail will be closing the road around Ludlow station (Station Drive) on the dates and times listed below but please note these dates can change:

Saturday nights – 10 February, 17 February, 24 February 10:00pm to 6:00am 2024 

The station will remain open to passengers during work. The project is due to be completed by summer 2024.
