Access for all scheme / listed building consent
Further to Weston Station becoming a Listed Building, Network Rail needed to reconsider their response to providing an Access for All Scheme which had previously been proposed as a stand along bridge, stair, and lift arrangement beyond the existing station. The Motts, Fereday Pollard design team explored and developed a more integrated scheme which linked into the existing footbridge. The approach of the scheme aims to sleeve new lift shaft through and alongside the existing bridge structure. A simple pallet of material is proposed which are modern whilst complementary to the Victorian station and provide a symmetrical solution to the existing bridge arrangement. The scheme has been submitted for Listed Building Consent and has a number of letters of support.
