Step Free Access at Buckhurst Hill Station

As many of you will know I have campaigned for a long time on this.  In 2015 I got a commitment from the then Managing Director of Transport for London, that they would open up the other entrances and create step free access. In December 2016 I questioned senior staff from Transport for London at a meeting of Overview and Scrutiny at Epping Forest District Council and they reaffirmed their commitment. Yesterday TfL announced 6 new stations would step free access and of these Buckhurst Hill Station would be the first. Work will start this year and be completed by 2020 at the very latest. Myself and Councillor Simon Heap will closely monitor this. I am overjoyed about this.
