Question

I understand that at Kilburn station the train is lower than the platform. Can you please help commuters by pressing TfL to introduce safe ramp access to trains so that all wheelchair users are able to use Kilburn with freedom and independence?

I want TfL to do everything possible to improve accessibility and you will no doubt be aware that we have just introduced manual boarding ramps at a further 16 Tube stations (bringing the total across the network to 35).

Unfortunately, manual boarding ramps are not suitable at stations like Kilburn where the train is lower than the platform however TfL continues to investigate possible solutions to addressing access at these types of station.
