TfL is aware that discussions are ongoing between the London Borough of Barnet and the developer. As stated previously any step-free scheme, as well as timescales, are dependent on a sufficient contribution from a local development, and this has yet to be finalised.  

TfL continues to encourage the London Borough of Barnet, as well as other boroughs, to use contributions from local developments to improve accessibility via TfL's Step-Free Access Partnership Fund.
