The lift has not been out of action since last July. Work began on 31 January 2014 and is due for completion in June 2014.

The 11-year-old lift is undergoing an essential full refurbishment, which takes place about once a decade. As well as the refurbishment, TfL is also upgrading the lift so that it can be used in the event of a fire or evacuation. This will provide a protected power supply and additional staff lift controls at both landings.

While works are underway, customers needing step-free access are advised to use local bus services - which are fully accessible - or to speak to a member of station staff who will be able to assist them in continuing their journey.
