Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 19th November 2021 asking for information about step free access on the London Underground.
Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy.
Specifically you asked:
“Are there any plans to work on the Green Park lifts in order to prevent further faults?

I can confirm that we hold the information you require.
In answer to your first question, there are no particular plans for work on the lifts at Green Park station beyond ongoing regular maintenance.
In answer to your second question, the table below shows the current plans for the development of step free access on the Underground:

Paddington (Bakerloo lines only)
