West Drayton Station

West Drayton Station

Crossrail, Network Rail and Transport for London (TfL), have worked together at West Drayton station to prepare for the start of Elizabeth line services.

West Drayton station has benefitted from major improvements in preparation for the new Elizabeth line services including a new glass and steel extension which provides an additional entrance as well as a covered walkway between the existing building and a new footbridge. The majority of TfL Rail and GWR services operate from Platforms 2,3,4 and 5. Platform 1 is only used if the main platforms are unavailable. Lift access has been provided to Platforms 2,3,4 and 5 as of July 2021, with an additional lift to the lesser-used Platform 1 by the end of 2021.
