St Cecila’s, part of Leonard Cheshire Disability have launched a campaign for better access at Bromley South station.
However, if you have difficulty moving around or using stairs, if you have a pushchair or are carrying heavy shopping, you may find the station extremely difficult or even impossible to use. This is because the platforms are accessible only by flights of steps. And there is no way a wheelchair user could gain access to the platforms.
Bromley South is due for accessibility work to begin between 2012 and 2015. This just isn’t soon enough!
This time scale makes a mockery of Mayor Boris Johnson’s pledge to make London transport accessible to all prior to the Olympic and Paralympics Games in 2012.
And to add insult to injury, of the 92 stations given priority for accessibility improvements before 2012, only 6 have a higher annual footfall than Bromley South.
Access All Areas: Bromley South want to see action taken to improve the facilities at Bromley South station ahead of the planned schedule and ensure the station is fully accessible by 2012.
