Northwick Park Hospital is the busiest NHS hospital site in Brent and Harrow serving residents in and beyond the area and is served by Northwick Park tube station. Are there any plans to make Northwick Park tube station step free?

Transport for London (TfL) is currently working with third parties, including the local authority and developers, to identify funding sources that would enable improvements to be made to Northwick Park tube station. These improvements could include step-free access and enhanced station capacity. However, even with third party contributions, there would still be a funding shortfall that would need to be addressed before the scheme could go ahead. Without long-term capital funding from Government, TfL will not be able to make further progress on delivering more step-free stations across its network.

TfL is currently reviewing the results of its recent public consultation to help shape future step-free access priorities and expects to communicate the outcomes of the consultation in the summer.
