Question

30% of TLRN bus stops are not fully accessible. Will you give a commitment that all bus stops will be fully accessible by 2014? And where a defect, such as in the road camber, kerb build-outs, dangerous inclines or incompatibility of certain roadside treatments with vehicle ramp types, occurs will you pledge to an urgent response to address such failures?

As of September 2012, the proportion of Bus Stops on the Transport for London Road Network that were compliant with accessibility criteria was 80% of 2,157 stops. This leaves work to be completed at approximately 400 bus stops.

TfL's target is to bring that level of compliance to 95% by the end of 2015. I recently announced £18m of addition funding to deliver this.
