Bromley South is the 49th busiest railway station in the country with an annual footfall of over 6 million passengers. Located in London Travelcard Zone 5, it is a major interchange for thousands of commuters.

However, if you have difficulty moving around or using stairs, if you have a pushchair or are carrying heavy shopping, you may find the station extremely difficult or even impossible to use. This is because the platforms are accessible only by flights of steps. And there is no way a wheelchair user could gain access to the platforms.

Bromley South is due for accessibility work to begin between 2012 and 2015. This just isn’t soon enough!

This time scale makes a mockery of Mayor Boris Johnson’s pledge to make London transport accessible to all prior to the Olympic and Paralympics Games in 2012.

And to add insult to injury, of the 92 stations given priority for accessibility improvements before 2012, only 6 have a higher annual footfall than Bromley South.

Access All Areas: Bromley South want to see action taken to improve the facilities at Bromley South station ahead of the planned schedule and ensure the station is fully accessible by 2012.

We, the undersigned, call upon the Department for Transport to recognise the urgent need for Bromley South railway station, the 49th busiest station in the country, to be made fully accessible to all people with temporary or permanent mobility impairments.

We call for Bromley South station to be moved up into trenche 2 of the Access for All scheme to be made fully accessible by 2012 and in time for the Olympics and Paralympics games.
