Accessibility plans for Tube and Overground stations

There are accessibility improvements in the pipeline for both Underground and Overground stations in London, with several stations scheduled for upgrade to step-free status in the next six years.

These planned improvements are good news for older and disabled Londoners, as currently less than a quarter of Tube stations have some degree of step-free access. This is in addition to the New Tube for London project, which you can read about here.

Amongst the stations to be upgraded are several key transport hubs, including Bank, Victoria, Finsbury Park and Tottenham Court Road.

Here is the full list of planned upgrades and timescales for Tube Stations.

The table below shows planned upgrades and timescales for Overground Stations.

In addition to the above lists, there are some further initiatives to improve accessibility across London’s transport network:

This is all great for disabled and older Londoners, but it’s only a modest step forward, and there’s still much to do. Transport for All continues to campaign for improvements to this situation with the help of its members – click here to find out how to become a member – it’s free!
