Facts & statistics

  • Better stations

    • Over 140 platforms have been lengthened across London and the South East allowing longer trains and more seats for passengers.
    • Under the Access For All scheme, £370 million is being spent on making 154 of the busiest stations more accessible by 2015, including lifts, accessible toilets and reducing gaps between train and platform. More than 1,000 stations have already received grants for smaller scale access improvements under the programme.
