Wednesday's announcement that the government would build three lifts at Unanderra station has been a long time coming - almost 30 years.
Quadriplegic Richard Kramer started pushing government to do something about the station back in 1992.
All he wanted then - and all he wants now - is to be able to catch a train at his local station rather that arrange for a lift to Wollongong so he can use their lifts.
In 2009 it looked like Mr Kramer might get his wish when the then Labor government announced it would build lifts at Unanderra over a period of 18 months.
But that was wishful thinking; a range of delays, including the discovery of underground utilities in the area where the lift pits would be sunk, pushed the project back.
It was still unfinished in 2011, when Labor lost the election.
When the Liberal government took control, it altered the way station upgrades were selected. As a part of that, the funds earmarked for Unanderra were taken away and used elsewhere.
From there it was back to the beginning for Mr Kramer and other campaigners.
It was February 2015 when the campaign began to ramp up.
That month was when double amputee Toby Lyndon was filmed dragging himself up the stairs at Unanderra.
Also in the video was stroke victim Rebecca Lachlan, who, along with Mr Kramer, would form the Unanderra Access Group.
The group put continued pressure on the government and kept the issue of Unanderra station on the agenda, leading to this week's funding announcement.
