Croy station upgrades to improve accessibility
November 11 2021
IDP Architects have filed plans to overhaul Croy Station through the installation of an open footbridge and lift as part of a UK-wide initiative by the department for transport to provide unobstructed access to stations.
Enhanced design standards in the 'Access for All' mandate include being accessible by self-propelled wheelchairs, ideally with a maximum distance of 400m between drop-off points and trains.
Comprising twin lift towers joined by a stair parapet finished in telegray polyester coated cladding panels the new link will be centred over the middle of the station, replacing a ramped footbridge to the east which requires passengers to move off-site.
Located on the Glasgow to Edinburgh mainline preparatory works are expected to get underway by the end of the month.
North Lanarkshire Council is considering the request.
