Major improvements to West Drayton station as part of the Crossrail programme have been agreed by Hillingdon Council.
A new glass and steel extension will provide an additional entrance as well as a covered walkway between the existing building and a new footbridge. Three new lifts will provide step-free access to every platform. The station and platform improvements will be delivered by Network Rail.
The designs ensure that the existing Victorian station building remains the focal point of the station. The glazed station extension has been designed by Bennetts Associates.
