More Step Free Access On The Overground

Looking at the London Overground map for 2026, there appear to be additional stations marked for step-free access.

Blackhorse Road – Plans are detailed here. They may be already completed!

Brockley – Improvements in the near future are detailed here.

Honor Oak Park – Improvements in the near future are detailed here.

New Cross  – Improvements in the near future are detailed here.

New Cross Gate – This station would appear to be being rebuilt.

South Tottenham – Plans are detailed here in the Haringey Independent.

Watford Junction – I suspect that as everything seems to be happening at Watford Junction, full disabled access will be achieved by 2026.

Whitechapel – This will happen before 2020, as Crossrail will bring step free access between all lines here.

It does seem that all of these schemes seem to be following what appears to be Transport for London’s policy of improving the London Overground on a step-by-step basis as funding allows.

I suppose that with the Overground, putting in lifts and ramps is a lot easier, as the stations except for a few are totally above ground.
