Read and learn more about the accessibility measures we plan to put in place at a Daventry Parkway station in Weedon Bec.
Like every station in the UK, assistance will be bookable via the Train Operating Company or on National Rail Enquiries.
For many features in the station, audio is key. Induction loops will be present to support those with hearing disabilities navigate the station and understand where their train is.
Where stairs are present, lifts will be installed, to allow step-free access from platform to platform and platform to exit.
Like many stations in the UK, numerous accessible car parking spots will be available, with most having electric charging points too. Set-down and pick-up points will also be fully accessible.
We’ll follow Great British Railways signage from their design system, including fonts and icons.
We hope there to be a common staff presence, including cleaning staff, ticket office staff, and general customer assistants.
Toilets and similar shared facilities have accessible alternatives for those who need them.
We will follow all standards set out by national Government, including in this document:
