Answered By:

I was delighted that TfL was able to announce additional funding for vital step-free access schemes at stations in London.

TfL is already progressing plans to increase capacity, security and accessibility at Finsbury Park Tube station. TfL is currently working with the London Borough of Islington to clarify planning conditions, which will allow works to start and step-free access to be provided by 2018. This project is already funded and will not need to draw on the £75 million fund.
