Work to install lifts for disabled people at a busy railway station has been delayed.

First Capital Connect, which runs the railway service between Elstree and Borehamwood station and London, has announced that the work is now likely to be completed at the beginning of August.

In a tweet to a member of the public, a spokesman on the firm's @FirstCC Twitter feed said: “I have just been told that the lifts are in the testing phase and we are expecting completion by early August now.”

The new bridge will allow less mobile passengers, including people in wheelchairs, access to all platforms via the newly installed lifts.

Well, it's now August 19th and still no sign of the lifts / footbridge being opened. Maybe FCC have just given up and will let the new franchise holder deal with it.
