Forming part of the national railway improvement programme, also known as Access for All, the £370M scheme will upgrade accessibility at 160 stations around the country with the installation of lifts and ramps for disabled passengers.

Working on behalf of main contractor Spencer Group, Billington is fabricating and erecting approximately 130t of structural steelwork for the project. This comprises of bridge sections, stairs, lift shafts and canopies, all of which will be installed during two rail possessions in January and early March.
