Sherwood commuter Alan Bullion supports increased safety measures at High Brooms station

Sherwood resident and commuter Alan Bullion has seen several incidents where train travellers have had problems with the treacherous steep staircases at High Brooms station.

“One day I saw an elderly man lying at the bottom of the steps who had fallen as the handrail on the stairs had come away. We helped him to get an ambulance as there was no station staff on duty due to being a Sunday.”

Similar difficulties have been experienced by passengers with disabilities, school children, and parents with buggies and pushchairs.

“This problem could easily be solved by building a ramp behind the down platform onto the footpath coming out by the second ticket machine, which I successfully campaigned for over many years. There is railway land available and a track where this could be constructed. For many years passengers have suffered from a lack of facilities at this busy station, with no loos, no proper waiting rooms, and stairs that are clearly dangerous for many passengers.” 

Alan is calling for urgent action from Southeastern with other commuters before another accident occurs.

This would also benefit commuters from St James, St Johns, and Southborough.
