Once completed the fully accessible lift will connect to the existing footbridge on platform 1.

Philip Dunne MP has welcomed progress in improving accessibility at the station.

Dunne said: “I worked hard to ensure Ludlow was included in the Access for All funding, meeting Transport Ministers to make the case. So I am very pleased to see progress in putting in the new lift in Platform 1, which will improve accessibility across platforms for rail users from Ludlow. I look forward to seeing it completed in due course.”

The station remains open during the works which are due to be completed by the summer.
