Information relating to the lift at Paddington Railway Station

The request was successful.

Dear Network Rail Limited,

In relation to a FOIR made by myself on the 17th April 2019, (NR Ref: FOI2019/00451) you kindly informed me that the lift at Halifax station is due to be replaced in 2024 in line with “Network Rail’s renewal policy of 25 years”.

In relation to a FOIR made by a Mr Paulley on the 8th June 2019 regarding ‘lifts at Paddington Railway Station’ (NR Ref: FOI2019/00637) you kindly informed him on the 5th July 2019 that the scenic lift at this station “was installed almost 20 years” and that “Network Rail will be replacing the Scenic Lift by April 2020”.

Please could you provide the information as to why this lift at Paddington Station in London is being replaced approximately 5 years earlier than Network Rail’s own policy of 25 years and whenever or NOT Network Rail operates under a different policy for the South of England ?

Yours faithfully,
Michael Bradley
