An accessible toilet has been installed at Finsbury Park Station for the first time.

Govia Thameslink Railway (GTR), which operates Great Northern and Thameslink trains serving the station, have installed the new facility between platforms seven and eight.

The toilet complements the recently completed Access for All project, a major government-funded scheme by Network Rail providing step-free pedestrian routes between the platforms and the street.

New accessible toilets opened at GTR stations in the past year also include Palmers Green and Biggleswade, taking the number on the network to more than 100.

Keith Jipps, GTR’s infrastructure director, said: “We’re committed to making train travel as easy and comfortable as possible for everyone. We know how important accessible toilets are to many of our customers, so they are always one of our top priorities for our station improvement budget, wherever there’s space to install them.”
