Ealing Broadway station

Let's fix Ealing Broadway station!

Ealing Broadway - West London's busiest transport hub and gateway to the Town Centre - is a disgrace.

It has many problems:

  • The entrance is too small and even dangerous
  • There is no step-free access to the booking hall or the platforms
  • The forecourt is cluttered, with no proper set down space
  • Pedestrians have to cross a main road or push along narrow pavements
  • Bus stops for the station are badly organised, congested or too far away.

  • Constant pleas for action have produced no visible results. Too many different bodies - Network Rail, First Great Western, London Underground, TfL, London Buses, and Ealing Council - are involved, so nobody will move.

    Improvements promised through rebuilding the station for Crossrail are now under threat. Cost cutting has significantly reduced them, and the completion date has been pushed back.

    We, the passengers who use the station, pay the price and we have had enough.

    Ealing Council is the body that should represent us. Other Councils have joined with their local communities to negotiate with Crossrail for improvements. It's time Ealing accepted its responsibility to speak for us more vigorously!
