Southall station

Crossrail, together with Network Rail and Transport for London (TfL), are working on Southall station to prepare for the start of the Elizabeth line services.

Southall station will benefit from major improvements in preparation for the new Elizabeth line services including a redeveloped station entrance and façade, and a new, bright, spacious ticket hall will provide a more welcoming environment for passengers and a new forecourt will reduce congestion at the entrance to the station. Contracts were awarded in May 2019.

LATEST PROGRESS FROM NETWORK RAIL


ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM SOUTHALL

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, up to ten Elizabeth line services an hour in each direction will serve Southall, making it quicker and easier to get to destinations across London, South Bucks and Berkshire.

You can take some types of bikes on some of TfL Rail services. To find out which these are, see TfL's user guide or use the advanced options in Cycle Journey Planner.
