Mayoral candidate Sadiq Khan has praised Ealing Council for its efforts to transport and urged London to "follow their lead."
Mr Khan was there to see the new vertical lift, unveiled in Greenford on October 20 that is claimed to be the first of its kind, which is now the 67th step-free tube station in London.
He then paid a visit to Ealing Broadway station, where work is under way for an new and improved Crossrail and Tfl station, and praised Ealing council for its efforts.
"We must follow their lead across London"
Mr Khan said: “An accessible and efficient transport network is hugely important for the thousands of Londoners who commute every day.
"Huge credit must go to Ealing for their determination to ensure stations such as Greenford and Ealing Broadway are step-free and fit for the 21st century.
"We must follow their lead across London and make sure disabled people aren’t disadvantaged every day when using our trains and tubes.
“As Mayor, I'll make it a priority to invest in a transport network that is admired across the world and serves all Londoners.”
The visit was also attended by Greater London Assembly Member Onkar Sahota and Ealing Council's Transport Portfolio holder Councillor Bassam Mahfouz.
Ealing was named as Transport Local Authority of the Year at the National Transport Awards on October 8.
Its achievements, contributing to the award, included the installation of the gradient lift in Greenford, doubling lift and forecourt capacity at Ealing Broadway station and getting a lift approved for Hanwell Station.
Councillor Bassam Ealing’s Cabinet Member for Environment, Transport & Leisure said it was the council's resilience that transformed Ealing's transport options.
Mr Mahfouz said: “Five years ago we were facing disappointment at Greenford, lack of ambition for Ealing Broadway and a fait accompli at Hanwell.
"Today that’s all turned on its head through the choices we’ve made rather than by chance.
"We didn’t accept the status quo and we’ve worked with partners to make things happen. "
