Live status alerts for lifts and escalators at railway stations


To help people who have mobility needs get around the railway, live travel information about Network Rail stations will soon include information about the status of lifts and escalators.

Although it won’t prevent a situation where someone needs to find an alternative route if a lift is out of order, it will at least prevent the problem of someone getting off a train only to have to wait for the next train because they can’t get off the platform.
