product-halfheight Southall station to undergo major overhaul as part of the Crossrail programmeA local council has approved plans to redevelop one of the main transport hubs in its area as part of the Crossrail programme, a recent news report in the local business media has been able to find.

Proposals designed by Bennetts Associates for the redevelopment of Southall station were recently approved by Ealing Council, with the actual works being undertaken by Network Rail.

The new design includes a glass and steel structure to let in natural light along with a new forecourt, as well as a range of other improvements, such as a new footbridge with three new lifts to provide step-free access to every platform, platform extensions so the station can accommodate the new 200 metre long Crossrail trains and new lighting, customer information screens, station signage, help points and CCTV surveillance.

Matthew White, Crossrail Surface Director, said: “The Crossrail improvements will transform the station and deliver a larger building that will serve local people for many decades to come.

“The designs show a bright, spacious structure that will be easier for passengers to get around and will provide a focal point for the local area.”
