We have been advised that Penge West Station is currently not on TfL Rail’s current programme for upgrade to offer step free access. A real disappointment for our residents as Penge East offers no easy access.
There were two proposals for Penge West which offered alternative access to the down platform without putting lifts in but both are expensive and there is no funding available for the proposals to go ahead.
LBB stated that they are continuing to lobby TfL Rail to fund full step free access to both platforms at Penge West but advise that there are no current call for schemes or funding rounds available.
We will be liaising with local organisations and our residents to lobby for access for our residents with mobility issues.
