Default TfL to make half of Berkshire wheelchair accessible


"TfL announced earlier this month that it was taking over the running of
11 stations between Acton Main Line and Taplow from December 10."
"The Elizabeth line is going to transform travel across the capital and
it’s only right that every station will have step-free access."

Are Londoners paying for improvements to Taplow and Burnham?

does that mean that freedom pass holders will get free travel all the way to
Taplow?

Does it mean ghost stations like Iver will be permanently staffed?

Would be interesting to know where the boundary will be at the
western end of the Elizabeth line?


Boundary of TfL ownership? I presume Taplow will be it.

*Ownership* boundary will be near Royal Oak. Station responsibility
will be Taplow (Slough stays with GWR).



Zone 6 is currently West Drayton for Oyster and Freedom Pass
holders, I assume an extension ticket will be required for onward
travel to Reading then?

Freedom Pass/60+ Oyster holders only need a valid ticket of some type
for the extended journey as no touch in/out or stopping of the train
is required at the boundary station. PAYG Oyster needs a touch in/out
at both ends of the journey within the Oyster zones to prevent a
maximum fare being created.


True, but I don't think we know yet how far west the Freedom Pass will run
when the Elizabeth line opens: West Drayton, Taplow, or somewhere in
between? And what zone(s) will the new stations be in for Oyster?

Based on the current arrangements for FP/60+, "how far" is probably as
far as the GLA regards as reasonable (see also Swanley and Dartford)
to support GL residents going off-patch. West Drayton is the last bit
of the GL conurbation, Iver is in comparative countryside so Langley
or Slough would seem to be natural choices while anything west of
Slough is arguably a trip into the countryside beyond. For paid Oyster
it might be whatever the system can support, maybe in conjunction with
sorting the anomoly which is going to result if/when Watford (Met)
services (zone 7) are diverted to Watford Junction (zone 9 and a bit).

I imagine that the FP limit, and probably paid Oyster too, will be Taplow
then.

It doesn't seem likely that TfL will have any need to resolve than
conundrum any time soon.
