Contract awarded to bring step-free Access to Maryland, Manor Park and Seven Kings Stations

Transport for London (TfL) has awarded a contract to deliver step-free access at three stations as part of major station improvements ahead of Elizabeth line services commencing in December 2018.

Maryland, Manor Park and Seven Kings stations will become fully accessible. It was confirmed in 2014 that all 40 stations on the Elizabeth line route will have step-free access.

The station improvements will include new lifts, walkways and footbridges to Seven Kings and Manor Park stations. Maryland ticket hall will also be remodelled as part of the improvements to the stations currently served by TfL Rail, which will become part of the Elizabeth line in 2018. Customers at these stations are already benefiting from having staff present from first to last train.
