Burnt Oak Station To Be Made Step Free

These pictures show Burnt Oak station.

I’d never been to Burnt Oak station before.

Because of the layout of the station with an island platform, that has a double staircase with space in between, I suspect this could be one of the easier stations to be made step-free.

What Are Transport for London’s Plans?

Transport for London have stated that their aim is to eventually have all Underground stations with full step-free access.

Searching the Internet, I found there is this page on the Brent Council web site, which gives details of the Burnt Oak and Colindale Regeneration Programme.

As 12,500 houses will be built under this programme, it is not surprising that Transport for London are improving Burnt Oak station.

Tube Stations To Be Made Step-Free

This article on City AM is entitled London Mayor Sadiq Khan Names The Next 13 Tube Stations Going Step-Free.

They are.

These are in addition to these stations, which are already in the pipeline for step-free access.

As the City AM article reports that the new thirteen station will cost £200 million to upgrade, there is around £300 million of work to9 be done in total.

Perhaps some of the contracts will go the companies hit by Carillion’s failure!
