Hayes & Harlington station

Hayes & Harlington station

Hayes & Harlington station will benefit from major improvements as part of the Crossrail programme.

A new, bright, spacious ticket hall will provide a more welcoming environment for passengers and a range of other improvements will be made to the station, including: 

  • A new footbridge with four new lifts to provide step free access to every platform 
  • A new waiting room on platform 4/5
  • Platform extensions and new and replacement canopies 
  • New lighting, customer information screens, station signage, help points and CCTV.

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

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 2017, the station will be run by Transport for London.

Whilst building works at Hayes and Harlington station are taking place, drop off facilities are currently limited to the short-term car parking spaces near the entrance to Station Approach; disabled parking is however is available at the station end of the road.  Stopping and parking restrictions in Station Approach are being strictly enforced by a private contractor and it is not possible to pick up or drop off passengers anywhere else along the road. Drop off arrangements for once the new station is built and the Elizabeth Line opens are still being finalised.
