Ealing Broadway station public realm improvements consultation

The consultation

The development of the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) was planned to increase the capacity of Ealing Broadway station and would result in a rise in passenger numbers. In order to safely and efficiently accommodate this expansion, various improvements to the site and its surroundings were needed.

This consultation was looking for views from station users, as well as those who use the local area, on a number of proposed highway and public realm improvements outside Ealing Broadway station and in the surrounding area. Full details about the proposals of this consultation can be found in the original consultation documents.

  • Identify permanent location for rail replacement bus stops, in immediate station vicinity
  • Identify permanent location for rail replacement bus stands, near station area
  • Carry out additional traffic flow analysis
  • Retain the existing taxi rank configuration, and reconsider new signalised crossing to this area
