Stroud MP Siobhan Baillie will meet with transport secretary Mark Harper to discuss improving access at the town’s railway station after she raised the issue in parliament.
The mum-of-two spoke about her own struggles using the station in the House of Commons.
She told Forest of Dean MP Harper: “I wish ministers could see me trying to drag a baby, a toddler and a buggy up and down the steps at Stroud station as part of my campaign for accessibility measures.
“I am able-bodied, so it is even more difficult for people with disabilities and elderly people.
“Will the Secretary of State meet me to discuss the Access for All scheme so that I can go back to Great Western Railway and give an update?”
In reply the cabinet minister said: “I am grateful for that question from my constituency neighbour across the River Severn.
“We have spent £900 million on Access for All accessibility upgrades. I would be delighted to meet my honourable friend to discuss her specific proposals for Stroud station.”
Speaking afterwards Baillie added: “l will be using the meeting to press for the improvements that will make a huge difference for people in Stroud who are struggling to get around the station when they shouldn’t be.
“Many thanks to the Secretary of State for his response.”
