Answered By: 
The Mayor

Crossrail has been asked to conduct feasibility studies into the seven stations that are currently not step-free and do not have funding for step-free access. These studies have now been completed and an outline design of the preferred option to provide step-free access has been reviewed by the Sponsors (Department for Transport and Transport for London).

The Joint Sponsor team, on behalf of the Sponsors, are now compiling summary reports of the feasibility studies and aim to make these available in the next few months.
