We need accessbile lifts now at Selby railway station. We have cross by a barrow crossing if you are disabled or elderly in mobility scooter or wheelchair or as mother or dad with a young child in push chair you must book or turn up at least 30 minutes or wait until line is clear and being escourted by staff as the gates to barrow crossing are locked and the staff finish at 8 at night in booking office. If you arrive on platform 2 from hull after booking office is closed you have to travel and change at Leeds station where their lifts to catch a train back to Selby land right side on platform 1 you cannot use platform 3 after 8pm either as no staff on station. We have a footbridge that has been their years with staircase that crumbling and getting dangerous always in need of repair. Also in morning staff are having to leave the booking office to escourt people across the barrow crossing it's been bought to your attention but don,t see a town and district that has grown and Selby has become more and more busy station it's foot fall has risen and more and more trains are now coming and stopping going through Selby we are on main line to London kings cross and the station has no lifts and only barrow crossing it's becoming more difficult to cross the line for people who disabled and elderly who struggle up the staircase and for parents who have young children and disabilities who use wheelchairs and mobility scooters who have occasionally missed their trains cause the line is busy to cross on barrow crossing it needs to be done urgently rather then later
