Enfield Council scoops £850,000 rail station investment

"Enfield Council has been awarded an £850,000 grant by the government to part fund the construction of lifts at Edmonton Green station.

"The Council entered the bid as part of a consortium of organisations including Transport for London, National Express East Anglia and Network Rail, who will carry out the work. It is another example of the work being done by the Council and its partners to help regenerate Edmonton.

"The total cost of the lifts is estimated to be £1.45million with the remainder of the money coming from a variety of sources including section 106 agreements and funding from TfL.

"Enfield Council's Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Chris Bond, said: 
"These lifts will enable disabled people, those who have difficulty walking long distances, and parents with children to get to the station platform easily and with the minimum of fuss.

"This funding announcement is a tribute to team-work, and is a result of a number of organisations working together to make rail travel easier and more accessible to residents of this borough."

"The work is expected to be completed by 2014."
