Lymington railway station set to reopen after ‘faulty door’ closes site for weeks
LYMINGTON railway station is set to reopen after being closed for weeks because of a faulty door.
The closure came just weeks after campaigners in the town learned that Railway Delivery Group’s plan to close the station’s ticket office were to be scrapped.
Jon Ellis of Lymington’s Bottom of Town Group, which campaigned against the closure, said: “The Bottom of Town Group and many other Lymington residents express our utmost concern about the closure of the ticket counter facility at Lymington town station for several weeks.
“Not only the ticket counter and staff, but also the waiting rooms and toilet are closed. How long does it take to fix a door?”
An SWR spokesperson said: “A replacement door has had to be manufactured and this is being done at the moment. It is expected to be fitted next Monday, after which the ticket office will reopen.”
