A major overhaul of Hayes & Harlington station has been decided by Hillingdon city council. Landmark new building will be bright, spacious and provide a focal point for the area.
Construction work to start in late spring and to last around 18 months
Proposals for a major overhaul of Hayes & Harlington station as part of the Crossrail programme have been sanctioned by Hillingdon Council.
The distinctive new glass and steel structure will create a landmark station that will be much more visible and prominent than the existing station. A bright, spacious ticket hall will provide a more welcoming environment and a range of other improvements will be made to the station, including:
Creating of new footbridge with four new lifts to provide step free access to every platform. A new waiting room on platforms 4 and 5 will be built. Two platform extensions and new and replacement canopies are needed. The station gets new lighting, customer information screens, station signage, helps points and CCTV.
The new building, designed by Bennetts Associates, will be situated immediately to the north of the existing station and will replace a commercial property currently on the site. From the end of 2017, the station will be run by Transport for London as part of London’s integrated transport network.
When Transport for London-run Crossrail fully opens in 2019, up to ten services an hour in each direction will serve Hayes & Harlington station, allowing passengers to travel right through central London without having to change trains. The journey to Bond Street will be 15 minutes quicker and passengers travelling to Canary Wharf will be able to reduce their journey time by 17 minutes.
