West Ealing station

West Ealing station

West Ealing station will benefit from major improvements in preparation for the new Elizabeth line services including a new station entrance and façade, new ticket hall, new lifts, a new bay platform, extensions to the other platforms, new signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV.

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. 


Network Rail's improvement work is due to finish when the Elizabeth line fully opens. Contracts were awarded in May 2019 and the station will remain open throughout the improvement works.

The works include:

  • 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
  • A new ticket hall and ticket gates with office
  • Platform extensions to accommodate the new 200m long Elizabeth line trains
  • New bay platform for Greenford Branch trains by widening platform 4
  • New lighting, customer information screens, station signage, help points and CCTV

West Ealing station will be step-free from platform to street by December 2020.

In addition to the station improvements, Crossrail has been working with Ealing Council on proposals for improvements to the area around the station.
