Answered By:

Queen's Park station is owned by Network Rail and is therefore subject to their decisions on accessibility. The station is, however, eligible for funding to install lifts under the DfT's Access for All programme. TfL considers Queen's Park a priority location and recently nominated the station to receive Access for All funding, which the DfT is now considering. I have written to the Secretary of State in support of TfL's nominations for Access for All funding.
