Ealing Broadway station will benefit from major improvements as part of the plans to introduce the Elizabeth line.
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 space for more ticket gates including two wide gates
- 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 Elizabeth line trains
- New toilet facilities
- New customer information screens, station signage, help points and CCTV.
These improvements are being delivered by Network Rail. The platform extensions have now been brought into use. The focus will next move to the delivery of the new entrance, ticket hall and lifts. The station will remain open throughout the improvement works.
Network Rail's planned works will deliver the station upgrades at Ealing Broadway by December 2019 when Elizabeth line services commence from Reading, Maidenhead and Heathrow through central London.
The station is now operated by Transport for London.

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.
