West Ealing station

West Ealing station

West Ealing station will benefit from major improvements as part of the Crossrail programme.

A new, bright, spacious ticket hall will be constructed as part of the overhaul of the station. The glass and steel structure will let in natural light and will be surrounded by a large canopy. 

A range of other improvements will be delivered including:

  • A new station footbridge with lifts and stairs connecting the platforms to the station building providing step-free access from the street to all platforms
  • Longer platforms to accommodate 200 metre long Crossrail trains
  • A new bay platform for Greenford Branch trains by widening platform 4
  • A new canopy for Platform 4.

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

Details of the plans for Crossrail works can be seen on Ealing Council’s website.

The council will also carry out work to transform the area around the station. Draft proposals were published in 2014.
