London mayor Sadiq Khan has announced the next 13 Tube stations to go step-free and said they will be completed by spring 2022.
Combined, the stations record more than 33m passenger journeys each year. The stations to benefit are:
- North Ealing
- Wimbledon Park
- Boston Manor
- Burnt Oak
- Hanger Lane
- Park Royal
- Sudbury Hill
The news marks the next tranche of £200m the mayor is investing as part of a drive to improve step-free access across the London Underground network.
Khan wants to reach a target of 40 per cent of Tube stations being step-free by 2022, compared to the current level of 27 per cent.
Newbury Park, Bromley-by-Bow and Buckhurst Hill are set to be step-free this year, with work wrapping up at Harrow-on-the-Hill next year. Then Amersham, Cockfosters, Mill Hill East, Osterley and South Woodford will have work getting underway.
