The 2020 end date applies to rolling stock accessibility and not stations. However, when infrastructure work is carried out at stations it must meet EU and UK accessibility standards. In addition, the Access for All programme will have provided step free routes at more than 220 stations by 2019 and has already delivered smaller scale access improvements at more than 1,100 stations.
