Kentish Town step-free access funding is welcome

08 November, 2018

• KENTISH Town residents have long been concerned about the lack of step-free access to train and tube travel in Kentish Town.

This is all the more urgent given we will soon be opening a new Centre for Independent Living in Kentish Town led by disabled residents and serving disabled residents across Camden.

We are therefore delighted that Kentish Town West and Kentish Town Thameslink stations are being proposed as two of only 20 priority stations in London for step-free access funding from the Department for Transport’s Access for All fund.

We would like to thank all who have made the case including the Kentish Town Neighbourhood Forum, Kentish Town community groups, our MP Keir Starmer and lead for transport Councillor Adam Harrison. And to thank Transport for London for their work and support in taking this proposal forward.

This is a huge opportunity to make progress on something we have campaigned for as a community for years. We ask that Kentish Town residents and all who use the stations support this bid.
