Not enough is being done to make public transport accessible

Caroline Pidgeon has joined Southwark Liberal Democrats in advocating for Bermondsey residents who face a six-month closure of the only lift at Bermondsey tube station, heavily disadvantaging passengers with disabilities and mobility issues, as well as parents with prams and pushchairs.

Caroline said:

“Londoners with disabilities and mobility problems still face far too many barriers when it comes to accessing public transport across the Capital.

“The lack of adequately accessible public transport contributes hugely to issues of loneliness in our city, especially among the elderly and those with disabilities.

“It shouldn’t be this way and the fact that Transport for London cannot carry out this maintenance work any faster just isn’t good enough.”
