Hanwell station

Hanwell station will benefit from a number of improvements in preparation for the new Elizabeth line services, including a new station information system, security systems and CCTV.

Transport for London will install two lifts at the station to provide step-free access to both platforms before the first Elizabeth services begin in 2019.  The entrances and subway will also be refurbished.

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


From December 2019, when the full route opens, four Elizabeth line trains an hour will allow passengers to travel to Heathrow or through the central London tunnels to Southeast London and Essex.
