Chatham 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.

Chatham station is on the list.

These pictures show the station.

This Google Map shows the station.

Note.

  1. The station building is above the tracks.
  2. There are two staircases from the building to each platform.
  3. The platforms are reasonably wide.

It might not be an easy station to provide full step-free access.

Installing Step-Free Access

This Google Map shows the Eastern side of the station building.

You can just see the stairs at the back of the building.

In stations with similar layouts, Network Rail have built new stairs and lift structures, like these at New Cross Gate station.

Could something similar be squeezed in at Chatham station?

It would be difficult but podssible, in a station that handles nearly three million passengers per year.
