Acton Main Line station

Acton Main Line station

Acton Main Line station will benefit from major improvements as part of the Crossrail programme.

A new, bright, spacious ticket hall will provide a more welcoming environment for passengers and a range of other improvements will be made to the station, including: 

  • A new footbridge with four new lifts to provide step free access to every platform 
  • Platform extensions to accommodate the new 200 metre long trains
  • New lighting, customer information screens, station signage, help points and CCTV.

Details of the plans for Crossrail works can be seen on Ealing Council’s website.

Crossrail has also been working with Ealing Council on proposals for improvements to the area around the station. Early proposals were published in 2014.
