Ealing Broadway goes step-free


In preparation for the new Elizabeth line when it opens next year, the new ticket hall at Ealing Broadway station has opened, with new lifts allowing step-free access to platforms for TfL Rail, London Underground (District and Central lines) and Great Western Railway services.

Ealing Broadway, which was originally opened in 1879, is the latest Elizabeth line station to reach this milestone. It 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 120 tonnes of structural steelwork was lifted into position by contractor Graham Construction at the end of November 2020 and the station is now open, just six months later.

The extended platforms can accommodate Elizabeth line trains that are more than 200 metres long. The updated station also has improved lighting, signage and better customer information screens.

The station is staffed at all times while trains are running, with ramps available for those that need them to board trains.
