LETTER: ‘Why can’t we have a lift at Ely station?’

PUBLISHED: 13:19 18 September 2015 | UPDATED: 13:19 18 September 2015

Ely railway station is having a face-lift, but why oh why aren’t they putting in a lift, the drag on that old subway is a killer.

Okay it maybe good for exercise, but when you have a heavy suitcase, it certainly is not fun. There are many people like myself (age 76 years) who still like to travel on trains, and be independent.

Cambridge and many other stations do have lifts, so why not Ely? Ely station is quite a busy one, and the cost of tickets going up all the time could justify this, surely life could be made a bit easier for us OAPs without having to ask for special assistance.
