West Hampstead Lift

Sadiq Khan and TfL have denied much-needed funds for improving West Hampstead interchange, refusing to fund any investment in a station lift for the Jubilee Line station despite the long-expressed views of many commuters, local councillors, and the local residents' associations. This is despite TFL apparently having £200m to spend on station improvements across London, parts of which are going to far less busy stations.

The West Hampstead stations are already far too busy in the mornings - with over 10 million passengers a year and with only a single staircase to the Jubilee line - and there are clear potential safety concerns with queues spilling out of the station along a narrow bus route in the mornings. This can be a nightmare for residents - especially elderly residents and those with wheelchairs.

The interchange is only going to get busier with more and more development in and around West Hampstead - as an "intensification area" in the 2016 London plan calling for hundreds of new homes - and with so many people using the overground link.
