Work Complete On Ealing Broadway Station

Construction News Image
GRAHAM has completed construction work on Ealing Broadway Station.

The new ticket hall at Ealing Broadway station opened for customers with new lifts enabling step-free journeys on TfL Rail, London Underground (District and Central lines) and Great Western Railway. The station is staffed at all times while trains are running with ramps available for those that need them to board trains.

As the latest station to reach this milestone ahead of the Elizabeth line opening, Ealing Broadway has undergone a significant transformation by Network Rail to build a large new ticket hall with more space for customers. A glass frontage makes the entrance brighter with a longer gateline replacing the cramped entrance previously used to enter and leave the station.

The extended platforms are capable of accommodating the longer Elizabeth line trains, which are more than 200 metres in length. The station also benefits from improved lighting, signage and customer information screens providing a better customer experience.

Rail Minister Chris Heaton-Harris, said: "I'm pleased that upgrades to Ealing Broadway, a crucial interchange station on the rail network, have been completed. This is a Victorian station transformed for modern passengers ahead of the Elizabeth line opening."
