What accessibility assessment was done regarding the barriers at St Werbergh's Road Metrolink Station

The request was successful.

Dear Transport for Greater Manchester,

Please could you provide me with a copy of the accessibility assessment that was done prior to the installation of the footway barriers at St Werbergh's road Metrolink Station. These barriers provide a significant obstacle to many legitimate users, to both the station itself and to the onward route along the Fallowfield Loop, so I am hoping to see how much consideration this was given, and if no such assessment exists I will be expecting to see the barriers removed, or at least reinstalled to provide the required access to users of mobility scooters, non-standard bicycles, etc.

Yours faithfully,

Mr T Blackwell
