Question

The 2014 TfL Business Plan says, "In 2014 we developed and gained approval from the Department for Transport (DfT) and the Office of Rail Regulation (ORR) for a new ramp design that can be used where the train is lower than the platform. This is already in use at Kilburn, Stanmore and Wembley Park stations and will soon be introduced elsewhere on the network". Please list what stations these new ramps will be introduced in.

These innovative new ramps are now in use at Woodside Park, Harrow and Wealdstone, Wembley Central, and Barkingside Tube stations.

TfL plans to roll these boarding ramps out to additional stations during 2015.  These stations will be confirmed following testing.
