There are 270 stations on the London Underground Network of which, currently, 28 per cent are accessible.

There are 29 stations south of the river and of these 11 have full step free access. So 37.9 per cent of stations south of the river have step-free access.

There are 241 stations north of the river and 67 of those have step free access. So 27 per cent of stations north of the river have step free access.

My Accessibility programme will deliver step-free access to Wimbledon Park in 2020 and when the Northern line extension is complete, Battersea Power Station and Nine Elms will also provide step free access. When all this work is complete, 41 per cent of stations south of the river will have step free access.
