Step-free: South Woodford to central London


South Woodford became the 78th Underground station to be fully step-free following the completion of TfL works in March. Having previously only offered step-free access for customers using the eastbound entrance – for services to Epping – the installation of a new ramp at the westbound entrance now also provides a step-free pathway for customers travelling into central London. “I’m delighted this station has become step-free because it is used by so many of our residents to travel across the borough and into central London. Step-free access will hugely benefit many of our residents with mobility issues, luggage or buggies,” said Leader of Redbridge Council, Councillor Jas Athwal. South Woodford station sees almost 5.3m customer journeys each year.
