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.
