DfT allocated £41m from 2006 to 2014 to Transport Scotland for increasing the number of step free railway stations in Scotland.
The aim of this programme is to create an unobstructed and obstacle free 'accessible route' within each station, from at least one station entrance, to each platform, and between platforms served by passenger trains.
The improvements at these stations are being delivered by Network Rail and further details can be found on their Access for All website.
By 2014 nineteen Scottish stations had been made step free and accessible through this fund by installing compliant footbridges served by lifts or ramps.
In December 2014 the Secretary of State for Transport announced the extension of the Access for All fund to 2019. An additional six Scottish stations were included in the increased upgrade programme.
Network Rail are now developing proposals to improve access at Blairhill, Elgin, Hamilton Central, Kilmarnock, Kilwinning and Westerton railway stations. It is anticipated that work will begin on these stations over the next couple of years.
In addition, the Access for All Small Schemes fund provides ScotRail and other partners with a further £6m of investment to make smaller access improvements at a range of stations across Scotland.
