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.

So it appears some people still live in the real world.

With thanks for your update post, Adelante_CCT, I have now merged both topics here and expanded the topic heading, for ease of future reference.  CfN.  Smiley

William Huskisson MP (Member of Parliament) was the first person to be killed by a train while crossing the tracks, in 1830.  Many more have died in the same way since then.  Don't take a chance: stop, look, listen.

"Level crossings are safe, unless they are used in an unsafe manner."  Discuss.

Upgrade at Reading West still going ahead (using some of the failed East MRT project money), however no lifts to be included.
