Answered By:

TfL is not aware of any European Union funding for step-free access schemes in general, nor for the development of the Mill Hill East area specifically. 

             

There is already an identified scheme and funding strategy in place for step free access at Mill Hill East.  The release of this third party funding is dictated by the Planning Consent for an adjacent residential development and the supporting Section 106 agreement, which will only release funds according to development profitability thresholds. Discussions with the developer have indicated that this profitability threshold could be achieved by the early 2020s.
