Cockfosters LUL on Picadilly Line to be made step free

Six more stations are to be made step-free as part of a £200m investment programme to make Tube travel more accessible over the next five years.

They are Amersham, Buckhurst Hill, Cockfosters, Mill Hill East, Osterley and South Woodford.

This will bring the total number of stations with step-free access to platforms to more than 100 – but even so means more than half the 260 LU-owned stations remain inaccessible for many users.

Gordon Deuchars, policy and campaigns managers for Age UK London, said: “An accessible Tube network is vital for older people. It means they can see friends and family, have a more active social life and make the most of everything London has to offer.”

It comes as Tube contractors were today ordered to come up with their own ideas for installing step-free access when they bid for multi-million pound station improvement contracts.
