It is a strange society that we live in that our modern offices must be accessible for all but the transport system used by those who need to get to those offices still present challenges because they have not been well designed for those with disability.
The railway platforms have not really changed in design so surely the designers of the new trains coming into service can accommodate access for those with a disability. A comparison can be drawn with those buses who automatically extend a ramp or lower their buses to ease access.
I have acted in personal injury claims on behalf of those with disability which frequently requires us to consider access therefore surely the train operators with their substantial resources can tackle the issue highlighted by Aspire Charity.
Until the Government includes a truly inclusive accessible transport system in its vision for health and work, and disabled people can set out on any given day, absolutely certain of arriving on time, unflustered and with dignity intact, their talents will sadly not be allowed to take them much beyond the front door.
