Accessibility at Streatham Station confirmed

Further to our report a few weeks ago, Green member of the House of Lords Jenny Jones very kindly tabled a question in Parliament so we could get confirmation that the funding to make Streatham Station accessible was secure, and where the matched funding would be coming from.

It seems that the £50,000 Section 106 money from the hub development for Streatham Station will be used after all (as we pushed for) as matched funding funding.

This is the response in full (also online here):

Streatham Station


Asked by Baroness Jones of Moulsecoomb
To ask Her Majesty’s Government what plans they have to make funding available under the Access for All programme to make Streatham overground station accessible; whether matched funding has been promised; and if so, by whom.[HL2395]

The Minister of State, Department for Transport (Baroness Kramer) (LD): Access for All funding will be made available to provide Streatham station with an accessible route to each platform by April 2018. There is £50,000 in match funding available from Lambeth Borough Council.
