November 18, 2009

The Directgov website has made some improvements to its Blue Badge map, which provides information on accessibility and accessible facilities across the UK. New features include:

* a rail map with information on accessibility and disabled facilities for more than 2,000 train stations in the UK

* assessments for more than 500 of these train stations

* accessibility information for more than 160 major football stadiums

* more information on London underground stations

* more information on car parking across the UK

Former England footballer Danny Wallace is now an ambassador for the National Association for Disabled Supporters (NADS). Danny, who has multiple sclerosis and is a Blue Badge holder himself, said: ‘I was pleased to hear that NADS and Directgov have been working together and sharing their information in this way. The Blue Badge map is an important service and one that should help disabled

fans across the UK.’
