Answer for Step Free Access

Answered By: 
The Mayor

As I outlined last week when launching TfL's new Business Plan, these are truly challenging economic times and follow a legacy of over-promising by the previous Mayoral administration. This has led to us making some tough decisions and TfL will not be able to deliver everything it would like to by when it originally planned. Unfortunately, this means that the delivery of step-free access schemes at Archway, Finsbury Park and Highbury & Islington stations will have to be deferred until the later years of the plan.
