Over the next few months, TFL (Transport for London) will be carrying out a consultation across London, to help shape their future approach for Step-Free stations.
The Lancaster West Neighbourhood Team want you to get involved and help get Latimer Road and Ladbroke Grove stations Step Free.
Latimer Road and Ladbroke Grove Stations are not currently Step Free – with some of our residents needing to commute to Paddington Station to access the closest Step Free station.
Having Step Free options at either Latimer Road or Ladbroke Grove Station would greatly improve travel options for those of us with limited mobility or with unique transportation needs.
The latest census data shows us most people rely on public transport for daily activities as it states that 65.9% of households in Notting Dale Ward are without access to a car or van. On top of this, there are real needs in this area with ward level census data indicating that:
- health and disability outcomes are “bad or very bad”
- 12% of the ward is aged 65 and over
- 70.8% of the Notting Dale ward is made up of social housing
Note that the consultation closes on 10 February 2022
