Ealing Broadway station is set to receive substantial improvements in preparation for the introduction of Crossrail. When the new services start from 2019, passengers will benefit from faster and more reliable links to central London and beyond. 

The main station works are due to start in September 2015.  The work is expected to last a little over two years. The station will remain open during these works.

Crossrail plans substantial remodelling of the station. The current cramped entrance and ticket hall be replaced by a new glass structure that will let in much more natural light and be significantly more spacious. In addition, new lifts and staircases will make it much easier for passengers to get around the station.
