Created in 1996 from the boroughs of Grimsby and Cleethorpes, North-East Lincolnshire is a fairly new addition to the UK map.
With an abundance of towns and cities within its boundaries, transport links are important to local citizens. Public transport options are of equal importance to those travelling into the area for holidays. With the popular Pleasure Island theme park in Cleethorpes and a plethora of sporting teams, the area attracts many people for a number of reasons.
Many of the train stations in North-East Lincolnshire are less used and less known. The platforms are often small and the stations themselves are not always well maintained. This may seem like an aesthetic issue, but this stops being true when a trip or fall at a train station leads to you suffering from a broken bone, or a serious head or back injury.
Maintenance is important
The safety of passengers and commuters should be the top priority for those in charge of maintenance at train stations.
It is a dangerous situation when these people fail to do their jobs properly, leading to a public transport accident in North-East Lincolnshire, the outcome can be deeply traumatic for you or your fellow travellers. If you suffer a serious injury as a result of a trip or fall at a station, you deserve to be compensated by those responsible for the lack of maintenance.
It is easy to overlook smaller stations, those with less foot traffic. It is often natural to assume that the risk to passenger safety is far higher at busier stations with more commuters passing through. But the fact that more maintenance is necessary at large stations, should not mean that this work is carried out at the cost of valuable maintenance at smaller stations.
Everyone deserves to feel safe when they travel, regardless of how small their local station may happen to be.
