We need an answers on the question of tube station access

05 July, 2018

• AS Disability Champion for Camden Council I am totally in favour of the council’s development of part of Greenwood Place into a new disability centre but one factor worries me.

This is the severe lack of any lifts and disabled access in the nearest tube station at Kentish Town, as outlined by former Liberal Democrat councillor Paul Braithwaite, (It’s simply unacceptable that Kentish Town Thameslink station has no access for people with disabilities, June 28).

How can any disabled person, particularly a wheelchair user, get out of the station platforms, and up and out into Kentish Town Road and then onto Greenwood Place, many yards away, to become a user of the centre?

This severe problem of lack of access for disabled people must be urgently dealt with by those developing the centre with Transport for London and Network Rail so that it is guaranteed to be in place before the Community Infrastructure Levy goes ahead?

Can we have some explanation from the council urgently?
