A member of Barnet Council’s cabinet has praised Transport for London (TfL) after a mini-ramp was introduced at a Barnet station.

The introduction of the mini-ramp at Edgware Station means wheelchair users will now be able to use the station to board trains for the first time.

Barnet’s cabinet member responsible for transport, Alan Schneiderman said: “it is great that TfL have introduced this measure. We want all Barnet residents to be able to access public transport and will always champion this agenda.”
