I wasn't sure which section to post this in. It also makes reference to jacking up the bridge for the purposes of electrification.

A comment on that article by someone identifying themselves as disabled.

(s)he says that (s)he doesn't see any realistic way even in the 21st century to make the station accessible and instead (s)he prefers to go to the Reading Mainline station.
