West Ealing station plans submitted

Designs for a new station building at West Ealing have been submitted to Ealing Council. The work forms part of a major station overhaul as part of Crossrail.

West Ealing’s plans include a bright, modern, spacious new ticket hall. The glass and steel structure will let in natural light and will be surrounded by a large canopy. The new building will be located on Manor Road to the northwest of the existing station building.

A range of other major improvements will be made to the station, including a new footbridge with new lifts to provide step-free access to every platform, a new bay platform for trains on the Greenford branch line, platform extensions so that the station can accommodate the new 200 metre-long Crossrail trains, new lighting, customer information screens, station signage, help points and CCTV.
