Ealing Broadway station

Ealing Broadway station

Ealing Broadway station will benefit from major improvements as part of the Crossrail programme.

The new station will have a long, curved canopy running the length of the forecourt, the dated façade will be replaced with a new glass structure and a new entrance twice the size of the existing one will give the building a much larger, brighter feel.

Inside the station, improvements comprise:

  • A ticket hall more than twice the size of the existing one with capacity for 17 standard ticket gates and one wide gate
  • Four new lifts to provide step free access from street level to all platforms
  • Improved staircases for platforms 1 and 2/3
  • Platform extensions to accommodate the new high capacity Crossrail trains
  • New toilet facilities
  • New customer information screens, station signage, help points and CCTV.

The work, being carried out by Network Rail, will take around two years to complete. The station will remain open throughout the improvement works. From late 2017, the station will be run by Transport for London.

Find out more detail on the plans for Crossrail works approved by Ealing Council.

Crossrail has also been working with Ealing Council on proposals for improving the area around the station, including improvements to the station forecourt. Visit the Council website for more information.

Network Rail has taken possession of the retail units at the front of station and set up a temporary worksite on a section of Haven Green.  A new emergency escape bridge has been placed at the London end of platforms 1 - 4.

A series of measures are in place to keep disruption to an absolute minimum:

  • Acoustic barriers will be used to limit the impact of any noise
  • Levels of noise and dust will be consistently monitored
  • No deliveries to site will take place during morning and evening rush hours
  • Residents and businesses will receive notification letters about disruptive work
  • Haven Green will be fully reinstated once the work is complete.


From May 2018, up to four trains an hour in each direction will run between Paddington and Heathrow.

From December 2019, when the full route opens, up to ten Elizabeth line services an hour in each direction will serve Ealing Broadway, making it quicker and easier to get to destinations across London and Berkshire.
