I visited Abbey road station in November 2021. It is highly accessible to the bridge level via lifts, and also has a side access which is at street level into Abbey row.
Abbey Road is a new station on the highly accessible DLR line, and only 3 minutes ride from Stratford station. It is served by lift access, and the step onto the trains from the platform is slight. This station is recommended as highly accessible for wheelchair users.

Underground lines : Docklands Light Railway (DLR) is a fully accessible railway for people using wheelchairs. All DLR stations have a lift or ramp access to the platforms, with level access onto the trains. All lifts have alarms enabled, which allow you to talk directly with a member of DLR staff should you experience any problems. The gap between the platform edge and the train is 7.5cm wide and the step up or down from the platform to the train is 5cm high. Most wheelchair users find getting on and off smoothest with the largest wheel first.

There is Lift access between street and platform.
