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.


These improvements have been delivered by Transport for London (TfL).

  • The entrance on Campbell Road and the subway have recently been refurbished
  • Toilets inside the station have been refurbished


TfL will install two lifts at the station to provide step-free access to both platforms before the full Elizabeth services begin. 

Hanwell station will be step-free from platform to street by December 2019.

Crossrail has also been working with Ealing Council on plans to improve the area around the station.

TfL Rail provides stopping services from Paddington to Heathrow Airport (Terminals 2&3 and Terminal 4 stations) via Hayes & Harlington.

Services from Paddington to Heathrow run every 30 minutes, with a journey time of about 35 minutes. Free shuttle services run from Terminals 2&3 to Terminal 5 with a journey time of 6 minutes.

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.
