The lifts will greatly improve access for customers with reduced mobility, including people travelling with heavy luggage or with children in buggies. In total, a third of London underground stations are now step free.

Politicians in Harrow had campaigned for step-free access at the station and were thrilled when Mr Khan included it in a transport upgrade-package worth £200 million.
