Following criticisms of the orginal designs for Ealing Broadway Crossrail Station, new designs have now been approved by the planning committee. The ticket hall will be much larger and will include 4 new lifts to the platforms from street level and 18 ticket gates. They can be seen here on the Council planning website. See this response from Crossrail to an Ealing correspondent. We generally welcome the new proposals but seek some further minor design improvements. Works on the station are expected to start in October 2015 and will take 14 months. Services will begin between May 2018 and December 2019.
