Brockley 'fully accessible' by 2014

BCer Monkeyboy has sent us a copy of TFL's draft accessibility plan, which sets a goal of making Brockley Station fully accessible by 'early 2014'. It notes that this work is fully funded.

New Cross and New Cross Gate are scheduled for Autumn 2013 and Honor Oak for 'late' 2013.

No mention of St Johns I see, but then it would take a talented designer to devise a way of getting a wheel chair down to the platform there.

St Johns isn't a TfL station

Or is Blackheath, the funding is DfT/NR under the Access For All thing but TfL benefit because Southern use Brockley.... I think.

Often find that there is funding from different pots, the various bodies (should) sit down to work out the most sensible way of spending so that all users benefit.

The ramp was money from elsewhere for example so is somethink they don't need to look at.


I'm guessing a little bit

well the refurb tripled the number of steps...

You mean the brockley common project added a compliant ramp and wider steps with landings. Just a shame Conways did such a shoddy build.

Speaking of shoddy steps I noticed the other night that more of the treads have come off the steps and been replaced with what looks like tarmac poured into the groove.

I should probably have another look in daylight, but it's just another bit of grotty workmanship. Can Lewisham ask for their money back?
