Station lifts set to open

PASSENGER lifts at Goring train station are expected to be up and running within the next week

PASSENGER lifts at Goring train station are expected to be up and running within the next week or so.

The three lifts were installed by Network Rail earlier this year as part of a new £2million covered footbridge but have since been undergoing safety tests.

Great Western Railways, which will be responsible for their upkeep, said they may be pressed into action today (Friday).

Goring’s old iron bridge was replaced by a taller one to make space for overhead cables as part of the Great Western main line electrification project.

It wasn’t going to have lifts but Network Rail relented after a campaign by Goring’s mobility issues group and Henley MP John Howell.
