Lift status at Transport for London stations

Current Issues


Step-free access is not available from terminating Metropolitan line trains. 02:33 21 Jul

East Ham

No step free access due to an absence of station staff. 22:26 26 Aug

Forest Gate

From Thursday 10 March until late 2016 access to the platforms will be via the side entrance on Forest Lane only. To avoid the additional stairs, use bus routes 25 or 86 from stop F to Manor Park or from stop E to Stratford. Alternatively, speak to a member of TfL staff for advice. This is while Network Rail carry out Crossrail construction work to refurbish the existing ticket hall and footbridge and make the station step-free. 02:33 21 Jul

Liverpool Street

Please note that on the eastbound Circle, Hammersmith & City and Metropolitan lines, only the front five coaches are step-free between the trains and the platform. Step-free access is not presently available to the westbound platform or any Central line services. 02:33 21 Jul


Between 2200 - 0500 from Sunday 21 August until Saturday, due to planned lift works there will be reduced step-free access at Westminster. Customers that require step-free acces to the station should use the fireman's lift on Canon Row located outside of the station. Customers will be able to access the Eastbound Circle / District Lines and the Eastbound and Westbound Jubliee line platforms. Customers wishing to access the Westbound Circle/District Line platforms should use this lift to the Eastbound Jubilee line platform and pass along the platform to access the lift to the Westbound Circle/District line platforms from here. 00:01 21 Aug
