Crossrail has submitted a planning application to build a new station at Hayes and Harlington.
The proposals include a ticket hall, a footbridge with four lifts to provide step-free access to every platform, a waiting room, platform extensions, replacement canopies, lighting, customer information screens, station signage, help points and CCTV.
The new building was designed by Bennetts Associates and will replace a commercial property currently on the site. From the end of 2017, it will be run by Transport for London (TfL) as part of the capital’s integrated transport network.
Matthew White, Crossrail’s surface director, said: “Our proposals are for a modern, prominent building that properly reflects the importance of the station to the area. A bright, spacious ticket hall and other major upgrades will make using the station a much better experience for the thousands of people who pass through every day.”
