Question

TfL's Access for All programme has put Brockley Station in Tranche 3 for improvements by 2015, whereas Forest Hill, New Cross and New Cross Gate are all in Tranche 2 for improvements by 2011. Can you explain this kick in the teeth for Brockley commuters?

Brockley is one of 10 former Southern stations for which LOROL became Station Facilities Operator in September 2009. TfL London Rail have made a tranche of bids for Access for All Small Schemes funding for 8 of these stations. These are relatively small scale measures to make the station DDA compliant and would complement the DfT 'step free' scheme.

I will ask the DfT to consider raising Brockley's priority to Tranche 2.
