Prioritise rail cash

Posted on December 31 2017 at 2:17:49

I live in Cofton Church Lane and enjoy walking and running around the footpaths of this beautiful area.

However, I find it hard to understand why Network Rail are considering spending £1 million on a bridge for the footpath across the railway in this lane yet are not able to fund construction of proper disabled access at Barnt Green Station. 

Surely the money would be better used to enable people with disabilities to access rail services, when those of us who are able-bodied can take a half-mile or so detour on our rambles (or even be trusted to look both ways before crossing the railway on the existing footpath!).
