Further to concerns that Mr Freer raised on behalf of a passenger who was injured at Golders Green tube station, TfL has provided the enclosed response and agreed to place additional signage around the station.
Thank you for email regarding the size of the gap between the platform and train at Golders Green station.
We currently implement the following safety measures at this station:
- Signage – ‘mind the gap’ signs painted onto the platform
- Staff positioning – staff are positioned at specific locations to warn our customers of the dangers
- Announcements – these are at all locations with noticeable gaps
- Staff training – all staff are trained on the safety mitigation for the platform-train interface
Furthermore, we have briefed and conducted talks in schools to educate children on the danger of gaps between the train and platform.
Following your email, we have requested additional posters and signage on the approach to the platforms at Golders Green station.
I hope the above information has been helpful. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
