Transport: Disabled

Volume 482: debated on Tuesday 11 November 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what steps are being made to make London transport more accessible to disabled people before 2012. (233838)

Transport for the London 2012 Olympic games and Paralympic games is the responsibility of the Olympic Deliver Authority (ODA). The ODA published their Accessible Transport Strategy in May 2008, which outlines the plans for ensuring that disabled persons can make best use of public transport to get to and from games venues and events. This includes the accessibility work streams under way on the London transport network, including improvements in accessibility at key stations such as Stratford Regional station and Stratford International, and other accessibility programmes such as London Underground’s “Step Free Programme”.
