|Good news for Putney Mainline Station|
in the first wave of feasibility reviews with a view to improving accessibility
Local MP Justine Greening has been highly active lobbying SWT for improvements to our station.
Following the announcement of the forthcoming reviews Justine said:
Obviously, I'll be watching closely to see that the feasibility study really does lead to action being taken to improve the station's access to everyone. Alongside the new ticket machines and the Secretary of State's agreement following my question in the House of Commons last week to make prepay flexible tickets a requirement for the retendering of the South West Franchise, we should see some real improvements in services locally.
Given that we also have agreement from London Underground to put a lift into Southfields Station it means our local rail and tube transport links will be able to be used, hopefully, by everyone locally."
