Make Northfields Tube Station Step Free
0 have signed. Let’s get to 2,500!
Transport for London is investing £200m to deliver step free access for a number of Tube stations by 2022. By then just over 100 Tube stations will be step free.
But Northfields station is not on this programme of improvements. This is despite Northfields being one of the busiest Tube stations in suburban London. The latest figures show almost 4 million people exited or entered the station last year.
Access to the Northfields platforms is denied or at least extremely hazardous for those willing to tackle the stairs - if you are a wheelchair-user, on crutches, visually-impaired or for those with a buggy or heavy luggage.
TfL cites the high cost as the reason for omitting Northfields from its programme to make our Tube station step free. But it has not carried out a full feasibility study to support its position.
We believe that there is a compelling case for making Northfields station step free given the numbers that use the station; its location next to the Northfields depot; its popularity by virtue of being in Zone 3; and its location by busy bus routes.
TfL is about to consult on another investment programme to make more stations step free.
Please sign our petition to ensure that Northfields station is on this next phase and that step free access to the station’s platforms is available as soon as possible.
