TfL is working with Network Rail and a third party developer in order to deliver improvements to Finsbury Park station. These improvements would include a new western station entrance, subject to planning approval for the proposals now submitted by the developer, as well as provision of step-free access to the Victoria and Piccadilly lines. 

TfL has been in dialogue with local stakeholders and this will continue with all relevant stakeholders including disability groups, subject to the outcome of the planning approvals process and progression of detailed design.  If you have any particular groups in mind that you would like TfL to engage with, please let them know.

The new western ticket hall will be designed to deliver a much more welcoming and accessible entrance for this key station.
