The Bracknell Forest administration welcomes the Government’s move to scrap the closure of rail ticket offices.
It was ill-conceived from the beginning, imperilling equal access for all. A scheme that makes it more difficult for all groups to access rail tickets, to get travel advice and information at stations, and for disabled passengers to get assistance, should never have got this far.
We are heartened that the Government has at last recognised this, and we are grateful to all the residents in Bracknell Forest who took part in its consultation. I would also like to thank all the residents and councillors who took public action against this.
– Cllr Guy Gillbe, Executive Member for Planning & Transport, Bracknell Forest Council
