Uddingston Station To Go Step-Free

This document on the Government web site is entitled Access for All: 73 Stations Set To Benefit From Additional Funding.

Uddingston station is on the list.

These pictures show the station and the current bridge,

This Google Map shows the station.

Note that Uddingston station has a fair amount of car parking, that is arranged on both sides of the tracks.

So if a traveller commutes or goes shopping in Glasgow, they have to cross the bridge at least once on their two journeys.

Installing Step-Free Access

In Winner Announced In The Network Rail Footbridge Design Ideas Competition, I wrote how the competition was won by this bridge.

Could a factory-built bridge like this be used at Uddingston station?

I think, due to space limitations, it might need to replace the current footbridge.

The advantage of placing it in the same position, is that the lift on the Northern side is close to the disabled parking spaces.
