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 lifts at the station before the first Elizabeth services begin in 2019.

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


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, four Elizabeth line trains an hour will allow passengers to travel to Heathrow or through the central London tunnels to Southeast London and Essex.
