I have been asked to travel to a customer site once a week for my job, that is in central london. I have mild cerebal palsy and I struggle getting on and off trains, especially the tube without the assitance of another person.

Now this new customer I have been assigned is a problem customer and how well I turn it around wil have a direct impact on wheather I get a promotion later on in the year, however a direct part of this is being on site at the customers location.

I have tried a work around and drive there and booking a car park close, but it is right in the city and the drive was impossible. I live just out side of London with normally only a 4 mile drive to work, but after 4.5 hours of driving to try and there earlier this week I wasnt even close so turned around and came home.

I have now told my boss is it not practical for me to travel to the customer site, but i am happy to continue with it working from my normal office location. Can I be penalised for this in anyway or would the fact that employers have to make resonable adjustments for people with disabilities mean that they should just assign me another customer?

Many thanks for all your help!
