Green light for Acton Crossrail station

Acton main line crossrail

Ealing Council has approved plans for a new Crossrail station at Acton in west London.

Network Rail is to carry out the reconstruction of Acton railway station, which includes construction of a glass and steel ticket hall designed by architects Bennetts Associates.

Other improvements to the station include new lifts and platform extensions to accommodate the 200m trains that will be used on the Elizabeth Line, as Crossrail will be know. There will also be a new platform canopy, lighting, signage and screens.

Crossrail recently unveiled the designs for several of the new stations that will form the Elizabeth Line.

Crossrail programme director at Network Rail Matthew Steele said: “Acton Main Line is one of nine stations that we are completely transforming as part of our massive programme of works for the Crossrail project. Our approved design will provide a greatly enhanced passenger experience for those using the station – the ticket office will be light and airy and the station will be fully accessible, with new lifts providing step-free access from street level to trains.”
