Question

On the 13th December 2016, in answer to a written parliamentary question by Baroness Randerson, the Transport Minister Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon announced that nine train stations in London would face deferred access improvements due to works being moved from Control Period 5 to Control Period 6 by Network Rail.  What steps have you taken, or intend to take, to make representations to the Department for Transport to ensure that vital access improvements at these stations are not delayed by up to five years?

Answer for Delays to access for work improvements at London train stations

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I am pleased that accessibility works at five London stations will be delivered as planned in Control Period 5.

It is however regrettable that Network Rail has deferred planned improvements at these nine London stations to Control Period 6. 

I will seek to raise this issue at a future meeting with the Secretary of State for Transport.
