Streatham Station to be made Accessible for All

Finally....after years of campaigning, we have a date from Network Rail to make Streatham Station accessible for all. Here's a little clip just after I had received the good news.

The Senior Community Engagement Manager for the South East confirmed that the refurbishment work will commence in January, 2022, subject to the approval of the train operator, GTR and other planning stages. They have also confirmed that there will be lifts from street level to each platform.

This is something the Green Party in Streatham have been campaigning on since 2012. There have been many promises made in the past, with the buck being passed between different levels of government but, our persistence has paid off with patience and careful negotiations with Network Rail and the community.

The Access for All scheme at Streatham station will be aligned with the same delivery timescale at Tooting station.

This is great news for the people of Streatham and means that we will now have a station fit for everyone.

Please share this good news far and wide.

Many thanks.
