Hadley Wood Station – Improved Access

Published on 25 July 2019 01:14 PM

Congratulations to our friends at Hadley Wood Rail User Group. The train station is now step free and the service improved. More at or email

John (Campaigns Officer) met the Chair and Secretary from the Hadley Wood Rail User Group who have done some excellent campaigns with Govia to improve accessibility at Hadley Wood. Thanks to them the station is the only accessible  

(but not fully) station on the oyster system on that line north of King’s Cross. Although northbound journeys are step-free, those wishing to travel step-free into London still need to change at Potters Bar (2 stops north).

The group feel that not enough people know the station is accessible and it could benefit people across Barnet and Enfield. As well as the physical changes at Hadley Wood, the group have made an accessible timetable and support the station manager and the accessibility to offer travel mentoring for those who haven’t used the rail system for a while. This would be useful for I&A volunteers to know.
