Access for All

The Department for Transport’s Access for All (AfA) programme aims to provide an obstacle free, accessible route onto and between train station platforms. 

Launched in 2006, AfA has so far provided 200 stations with better access across Britain’s rail network. Around 100 more projects are set to be completed by 2024, as part of a £300m fund announced in 2019. 

The continued success of the programme, and accessibility improvements delivered as part of other station enhancement projects, means that more than 75% of rail journeys are now through stations with step-free access, compared with around 50% in 2005. 

At Southeastern we have worked in partnership with Network Rail on AfA schemes at a number of our stations including Bromley South, Canterbury East, Gravesend, Lewisham and Swanley.
