Tilehurst Station upgrade

The issue   

Access to Tilehurst station is not accessible for all. There are not lifts to all platforms making it impossible for mobility impaired people to use.  

Cycle parking at the station is inadequate and oversubscribed.  

People who have walked, cycled or travelled by bus to the station are forced to cross the station forecourt that offers no priority to pedestrians.

The outcome
