There is a regular maintenance regime to ensure lifts are kept in optimum condition. Hydraulic lifts have routine maintenance checks every two weeks and newer traction lifts now being installed across the network have routine maintenance checks every three months.

Lifts also need to undergo major refurbishment at much longer intervals - this will vary depending on the type of lift but is usually around once a decade.
