Rail station's access path wins national award
A scheme to provide level access for wheelchair and pram users in Cornwall has won a national award.
The project at Bugle station on the Atlantic Coast Line, between Par and Newquay, won third place in the category 'Innovative Projects at Small Stations' at the National Community Rail Awards which were held recently in Llandudno.
Previously, the only access to the platform at Bugle station was by a steep set of steps. The idea for the new level access came from a volunteer from FoCal, the Friends of the Atlantic Coast Line.
Funding for the £10,000 project came from Cornwall Council, the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership, the Designated Community Rail Development Fund and a bequest from the late John Hobby, founder and co-ordinator of the Rural Stations' Project until his death in 2007.
