The Council is currently consulting on proposals to change the public space in front of Ealing Broadway Station. As well as changes to this area, they are also proposing changes in relation to the roads and pavements in the vicinity of the station. In particular, in order to increase the width of the pavement in this area it is proposing that the southbound carriageway would be reduced to a single lane south of the station in place of the existing three lanes (of which one is a bus stand). In our view this is likely to lead to gridlock in the vicinity of the station during rush hours but you will wish to make up your own mind when you have seen the proposals.
In addition, there would be no drop-off or disabled parking bays in the vicinity of the station – instead people are expected to drop passengers off in the existing loading bays opposite the station (outside the Shanakee pub). Minor changes are also proposed to the east side of Haven Green.
Please note that the consultation is not seeking comments on the rebuilt Ealing Broadway Station or the Crossrail project itself. Visit the council website for details of the consultation, which ends on 13 August, and to submit your response.
