Keeping Our Promises

Keeping our Promises to the residents of Buckhurst Hill East.

We are delighted that the disused entrances at the southern end of Buckhurst Hill Underground Station are to be re-opened.  
TfL announced on 29th June that six further stations on the network will get step-free access and that the first of these will be Buckhurst Hill, work started at the end of 2017 and hope to be open in Spring this year. 
This follows a long period of lobbying by our Local MP Rt Honourable Eleanor Laing, Cllr Neville Wright, and Cllr Gavin Chambers.
 
Cllr Neville Wright says:
‘Opening these entrances will improve the accessibility to the Underground for those who need step-free access, making life much easier for older and disabled people.  This will benefit both the east and west ward of Buckhurst Hill”
