Blue badge holders at Wimbledon Station

An alert from FixMyTransport.com tells me that there’s now a new and prominent sign taxi drivers to keep the right-hand lane of the slip road clear, so that blue badge holders can access the disabled parking bays.

You may remember the problems with accessing these parking bays because of taxis stopped in the taxi rank.

The wider issue of assistance given to disabled passengers was recently highlighted by Lib Dem London Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon, in the context of support at Heathrow Airport. She said:

Heathrow airport is the gateway for people coming to London, if not the UK. If disabled people are facing a poor service travelling through this airport it can send out a terrible message about the status of disabled people in London and throughout the country. In the year that London hosted the most successful Paralympic Games ever to be held we should be moving forward in the delivery of accessible transport, from the tube to international air travel.
