Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL will take over responsibility for services on the West Anglia inner suburban routes in May 2015. Of the stations that will be managed by London Overground Rail Operations Ltd, the following stations have step-free access to the platforms:

       Enfield Town

       Walthamstow Central

       Highams Park

       Chingford

Cheshunt and Liverpool Street stations will be served by TfL services but will remain under the management of Abellio Greater Anglia and Network Rail respectively. Both currently have step-free access.

Two further stations that TfL will take over responsibility for have received funding from the Department for Transport's Access for All Scheme to become step-free. Work has already started at Edmonton Green andSeven Sisters will become step-free by the end of the next Control Period in 2019.
