Tooting station Access for All Improvements

We are installing two new lifts at Tooting station, to provide step-free access between platforms.  

This will make the station much easier to use for passengers with limited mobility, with luggage, bicycles and pushchairs. 

What work is taking place?

The work includes installation of two new lifts, which will provide step free access to each platform from the main entrance of the station and down to platform level. 

The station will remain open and there will be no impact on how passengers access the station. 

When is the work taking place?

The works began in Spring 2023 and are scheduled for completion by Autumn 2024. 

Most of our work will take place from Monday to Friday during daytime hours (07:30 – 18:00) but there may be occasions where, due to the nature of the work, we have to work overnight or during weekends, when trains are not running. 

We will keep local residents and businesses updated as the works progress which will include any other periods where works will be undertaken outside of normal working hours. 

How the work will affect train me? 

The Access for All project at Tooting station will have no direct impact on train services. Any work that we need to do while trains are not running, has been scheduled for times when trains were already planned not to run during line closures of the railway.   

You can find out by visiting National Rail Enquiries or by checking with Govia Thameslink Railway.

What changes will I see around the station during the project? 

The station will remain open throughout our works. We will be installing hoarding on both platforms to segregate our works from the passengers which will reduce the platform width slightly. 

How will this project impact the roads around the station?  

We do not expect the roads around the station to be impacted by the project 

I have a question about the project – how can I get in touch?
