Wymondham Station Access - Update

For too long we have waited to get proper access to Platform 2 of Wymondham, Norfolk Station.

Despite a longstanding campaign by local campaigners and I who have repeatedly raised questions this unacceptable situation here her the last 10 years, and my successful campaign to secure £600k funding for access improvements via the Government’s Transforming Cities Fund, the work still hasn’t been done - with endless delay, slippage and new obstacles.

That’s why I convened a virtual summit this morning with key stakeholders to press home the urgency of this issue, find out what the hold up is and pressure them to put their foot on the accelerator. Improved access should be a quick first step on the road to a total regeneration of this key strategic location.

This has gone on for far too long. We need results quickly.

Rest assured, I will be working closely with stakeholders and taking the matter to DfT ministers again.
