Funding for Platform 4 access

Brentwood Access Group has been campaigning for over three years for access to platform 4 from the Brentwood Station booking office. Network Rail had claimed that a culvert had prevented the installation of a lift. However, they did admit that with additional funding, a lift could be provided. The Brentwood Access Group had pointed out that all stations on the Elizabeth line were having major upgrades but Brentwood was being treated as second class. The Brentwood Access Group together with the Brentwood MP, Alex Burghart and with the backing of Brentwood Bus and Rail Users Association has applied for funding for these essential works.
