Transport for London (TfL) continues to deliver the step-free access programme, which runs until 2024. Stations to be made step-free by 2020 are Amersham, Harrow-on-the-Hill, Cockfosters, Mill Hill East, Osterley, Burnt Oak, Debden, Northolt, Sudbury Hill, Wimbledon Park, Hanger Lane and Ickenham. Their completion by 2020 will mean that more than a third of the Tube network will be step-free.

A second tranche of six stations that are part of my accessibility programme will be made step-free by Spring 2024. They are Boston Manor, Ruislip, North Ealing, Snaresbrook, Park Royal and Rickmansworth.

Step-free access work is progressing at vital interchanges like Bank. The Northern line extension will provide another two new step-free stations at Nine Elms and Battersea Power Station. All 41 Elizabeth line stations will be step-free.

TfL will confirm any further rollout of step-free upgrades when the level of capital investment funding from Government is more certain.
