Twickenham MP Vince Cable has voiced his concerns over improvements for access at Teddington train station that have been further delayed.

The Liberal Democrat has requested an urgent meeting with the Transport Minister, Paul Maynard, after admissions by the Minister announced delaying it by another year.

In answer to a written parliamentary questioned asked by Vince Cable, the Minister confirmed that access improvements have been delayed and merely provided the vague assurance that the improvements “should be no later than March 2020”.

The Twickenham MP said: “I am seriously concerned by these delays in access improvements and I am seeking an urgent meeting with the Minister as he must provide immediate answers as to why these much needed improvements are being put back by a year.

"Teddington is a major local station and acts as an important interchange between a number of different routes, yet at present too many people are restricted in the journeys they can make.

“It is vital that disabled people and parents with prams and buggies can make full use of Teddington station.

“I also want to press the Minister on plans for access improvements that are needed at other local stations.”
