Seven of the stations, including four London stations, will not be step free to platform. Hanwell in Ealing,
Seven Kings in Redbridge, Maryland and Manor Park in Newham have no lifts planned. A further three outside London (Taplow, Iver and Langley) will also not be step free.
We’re campaigning for a Crossrail which everyone can use with freedom and independence. Especially as making Crossrail fully step free would cost less than 0.2% of the £14.5 billion Crossrail budget.
Join us for our Day of Action on Thursday 29th August!
One year on from the Paralympics, we’ll be holding our very own Legacy Torch Relay along the route of the Crossrail line. Our Torchbearers will be traveling by public transport from West and East, and converging around 11.30am at Crossrail’s offices at Canary Wharf.
11.30am - 1pm - Join us outside Crossrail’s offices in Canada Square, Canary Wharf (2mins from Canary Wharf Station) to call for a railway we can all use!
Come to this unique event and:
- Cheer our Crossrail torchbearers as they arrive from Hanwell and Seven Kings, flying the flame for an inclusive railway
- Hear from disabled and older activists who’ve been working to make their local station step free
- Learn more about what Crossrail means for you and the campaign to make Crossrail fully step free
- Meet campaigners and speakers from national and local groups
Following the action, there will be a Pan London Mobility forum on Crossrail at City Hall hosted by the Chair of the London Assembly Transport Committee Val Shawcross AM.
