Leatherhead 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.

Leatherhead station is on the list.

These pictures show the station and the current subway,

This is one of those stations, where lifts could probably be put into the subway.

But this would probably mean closing the subway, which is the main access between the platforms.

Look at this Google Map of the Northern end of the station.

The map illustrates another problem. There is car parking by the London-bound platform and commuters will need to cross the tracks.

But the map does show there is a lot of space and a step-free bridge might be possible at this end of the station.

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

So could a factory-built bridge like this be installed be installed at Leatherhead station?
