||There are over 10 million people in Great Britain with a disability and the Government is committed to providing transport for all. Improving the accessibility of railway stations and passenger trains will encourage more disabled people to use the railway network, and to do so more regularly. This publication, "Accessible Train and Station Design for Disabled Passengers: A Code of Practice", replaces the 2002 edition ("Train and Station Services for Disabled Passengers: A Code of Practice") and is released following a three-month public consultation period. The 2002 edition, widely referred to as the 'Blue Book', provided standards to be followed by train and station operators when carrying out works on their facilities. It also set out good practice guidance on how train and station operators could further help their disabled customers.This Code of Practice identifies standards relevant for all passenger train and station operators in Great Britain that licensed operators must follow whenever they install, renew, or replace infrastructure or facilities.The Code also provides advice and recommendations of good practice that all operators can implement in order to provide greater opportunity to travel for disabled people using the railways. The purpose of this Code is to assist those operating passenger trains and stations in making railway travel easier for disabled passengers. This Code of Practice was revised in 2008 to take account of incoming European standards for accessible railway infrastructure, which were adopted by the United Kingdom on 1 July 2008.
