The Access for All Programme is a key Government policy.

So far, over 200 stations have benefitted from step free accessible routes and over 1500 from smaller scale access improvements. There is more to come when we deliver major projects such as Crossrail and HS2 or when the industry installs, replaces or renews station infrastructure.
