The Scottish Parliament is in recess from 26 June to 29 August 2021 (inclusive).
Please note that you can still submit or sign a petition, however, a response from the clerking team may take significantly longer than usual during this time.
Under consideration PE1869: Make it law for all railway stations to have step free access
Calling on the Scottish Parliament to urge the Scottish Government to introduce legislation that requires all railway stations to have step free access.
Previous action taken
I have contacted the Scottish Government but received no reply.
People who have disabilities and are unable to walk up steps are appalled that the Scottish Government is not doing anything to make sure they can access ALL Railway Stations in Scotland. This means that some people who can’t drive are unable to get on a train either.
The Scottish Government NEEDS to do more so that people are not disadvantaged due to their disabilities.
This petition is now under consideration by the Citizen Participation and Public Petitions Committee
