Thank you to all ADKC members who signed the petition about making the progressing plans for an accessible underground.
We have now been informed that there are sufficient signatures. A report is being produced which will be presented at a council meeting at the end of the month.
If you are particularly interested in the accessibility of local stations – feel free to come along to the meeting to sit in the “public gallery” to listen to the presentation and debate. This is on Wednesday 27th January at 6.30 in the Council Chambers in Kensington Town Hall, Hornton Street W8 7NX.
For those of you that did not see the petition, it said:
We the undersigned call upon the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea to debate in full Council the need to lobby Transport for London immediately to timetable without delay the installation of lifts to promote better access and improved safety at all underground stations within the Borough, beginning at South Kensington, Notting Hill Gate, Latimer Road and Ladbroke Grove. Further, we ask the Council and Transport for London to work closely with Transport for All and similar groups to ensure the provision of a fully accessible public transport service that meets the needs of all Londoners and visitors as a matter of urgency.
