MP "delighted" at step-free access at Buckhurst Hill Station
 
Epping Forest MP Eleanor Laing has welcomed the announcement from Transport for London that Buckhurst Hill Station is now step-free, improving access to the transport network for thousands of people.

The Central Line station is the first to benefit from the Mayor of London’s £200m fund to boost accessibility across the capital.

Buckhurst Hill is the 74th London Underground station to become step-free and the first of five stations on the eastern section of the Central line that will be made step-free over the coming years.

Mrs Laing said: "I am delighted that Buckhurst Hill Station is now step-free. This is something that commuters and other users of the station have wanted for a long time.

"This will significantly improve access for older and disabled people, as well as parents or carers with buggies."

The Mayor’s investment, announced last year, will provide step-free access at a number of stations around London to increase the total to more than 100.

Investment across TfL will mean that by 2022, 40 per cent of the network will be step-free – a significant increase on the current level of 27 per cent.

The other stations confirmed to be included in the Mayor’s investment boost include Debden, Newbury Park, South Woodford and Snaresbrook.
