The Mayor of London’s plans to make Sudbury Hill station step-free

The Mayor of London announced today his plans to make Sudbury Hill station in Harrow step free as part of proposals to increase accessibility on the transport network.

We have a fantastic transport network but we need to ensure it is accessible to everybody visiting, or living and working in, our city. It’s great to see that Sadiq Khan is taking real action to improve accessibility and that people in Harrow will directly benefit.

This work will make our station much easier to use for people with disabilities, and parents using pushchairs. It's an important way of making our local area that much more inclusive, and reflects the Mayor's commitment to ensuring we are a city for all Londoners.

It's important that we recognise that accessibility on the transport network goes beyond step-free, so I will be urging the Mayor to take steps that will assist Londoners travelling with sight or hearing loss."

ENDS

Boston Manor (Piccadilly line, 2.32m journeys per year), Burnt Oak (Northern line, 4.52m journeys per year), Debden (Central line, 2.47m journeys per year), Hanger Lane (Central line, 4.10m journeys per year), Ickenham (Metropolitan line, 1.17m journeys per year), Northolt (Central line, 5.16m journeys per year), North Ealing (Piccadilly line, 0.91m journeys per year), Park Royal (Piccadilly line, 2.02m journeys per year), Rickmansworth (Metropolitan line, 2.46m journeys per year), Ruislip (Metropolitan/Piccadilly line, 1.95m journeys per year), Snaresbrook (Central line, 2.69m journeys per year), Sudbury Hill (Piccadilly line, 1.98m journeys per year) and Wimbledon Park (District line, 1.89m journeys per year);
