Sadiq Khan visits step-free Harrow on the Hill Station completed by Taylor Woodrow BAM Nuttall Joint Venture

Harrow on the Hill has become Londons 91st step-free tube station and the third project that the Taylor Woodrow BAM Nuttall team has successfully delivered as part of the step-free access programme.

Four new lifts have been installed, providing a step-free route between the street and Metropolitan line trains. In addition, station signage has been enhanced to assist with wayfinding.

This follows works that the team completed last year at Amersham and Osterley stations as part of the programme to make Tube travel more accessible for everyone. At each station, the joint venture has also upgraded mechanical, communications and electrical systems to support the lift installations.

Councillor Graham Henson, Leader of Harrow Council and Louise Weldon, Chief Executive of Harrow Association for Disabled People, joined the Mayor of London and TfL to celebrate the opening.

Mayor of London Sadiq Khan said: I want all Londoners to feel comfortable and confident when using our transport system, and improving accessibility is a top priority. Harrow-on-the-Hill station becoming step-free will make a huge difference to passengers with mobility needs and the wider public, making journeys quicker and easier...

Graeme Murray, Project Manager for Taylor Woodrow BAM Nuttall Joint Venture said, We are proud to have delivered the largest and most complex accessibility upgrade on the current programme. This has been a remarkable effort by the Joint Venture team and our supply chain partners which will greatly enhance the existing station.

From lift installations and modified platforms to steel access bridges, all works have been completed during traffic and engineering hours with no possessions and using the latest digital construction methods. We're absolutely delighted to hand over this accessible station to the local community with the knowledge that we've enhanced public accessibility and mobility.
