Navin's News: Step Free Access

Navin Shah demands urgent action for Step Free Access at Harrow on the Hill and Stanmore Station

I met with Isabel Dedring, the Deputy Mayor of Transport for London and Senior TfL Officers on Monday 23 June 2014 to discuss the future of Harrow On the Hill and Stanmore Station.  

TfL confirmed at the meeting, the appointment of consultants who will carry out a feasibility study for step-free access at Harrow OnThe Hill. This study is estimated to be completed in Autumn.

 TfL says they are looking at ‘third party’ funding from commercial opportunities (sale / development of TfL assets adjacent the station) and Section 106 Agreement(s).

I’m glad that Harrow Council is working actively with TfL to find a solution for step-free access at Harrow On the Hill station.

I very much welcome the proposal for a new steering group to monitor the progress. I’d be a willing to participate and help support this steering group.

TfL is looking at commercial opportunities for funding step-free access from the development of adjacent TfL land and properties. I am concerned that this approach will delay the development.

I feel that it is time the Mayor of London, who is also the chair of TfL puts his money where his mouth is to help Harrow.

Step free access is vital for this major transport hub which is also critical for the economic regeneration.
