|Streatham's Green Team disappointed again|
Plans to make Streatham Station accessible to wheelchairs, buggies, bikes and people with reduced mobility will not take place until 2020 at the earliest, Streatham Greens have learnt.
In response to a parliamentary question from Green Party peer Jenny Jones, transport minister Lord Ahmad wrote: “…it has become necessary to defer construction of the Access for All project at Streatham station until after 2019.”
This contradicts Network Rail area director Ellie Burrows, who in November told Streatham’s public Transport Question Time that work would take place in 2017/18.
Lord Ahmad said Network Rail would continue its development and design work at Streatham – in the hope that funding would become available in future.
