Redbridge rail users have taken to the web to make the case for a fully accessible Crossrail station at Seven Kings, as ministers mull a report into the feasibility of making all stops step-free.
Members of accessibility pressure group Transport for All tweeted pictures of themselves holding placards outlining reasons why the the 70-mile route across London should have lifts at every station.
Currently there are seven, including Seven Kings, where platforms will only be accessible by steps.
A study commissioned by Transport for London and the Department for Transport investigating the cost and feasibility of such a move has been completed and is expected to be published soon.
