NEW! - 21st February 2022: 10 - 40 The Broadway latest proposals and exhibition details
British Land have just announced propsals to re-develop the north side
of Ealing Broadway from near Morrisons and around to opposite the
station. The site will be known as "The Broadway Connection"
This is a reworking of plans from 2017 which would have extended on
about the same frontage but with a whole area of shops and flats to the
rear and extending to the railway cutting. - See our Archive page
regarding 9 - 42 The Broadway via the link above.
There are currently no actual plans or views of the proposed site but
an exhibition is scheduled to take place in early March. (see below)
They do say:-
Our emerging proposals for 10-40 The Broadway are to build on this and
create c.30,000 sqm of additional high-quality, flexible office space,
along with a better selection of shops, restaurants and cafes, and a new
route through from Ealing Broadway Station to the town centre. For this
reason we are referring to the project as “The Broadway Connection”.
NEW! - 1st March: Crossrail
and Ealing Broadway Station - just a few bits of information
Completion dates for Ealing Broadway
Station have gradually drifted back over the last few months. There are a
number of remaining issues as follows:-
There are “snagging” issues with the
new toilets which it is said should be resolved in the next week or so. The
temporary toilets should then be removed.
Network Rail wanted some of the new
security bollards at the northern end of the forecourt to be on Ealing Council
land and Ealing Council didn’t want this. The issue is said to have been
resolved and work does now seem to be proceeding.
There have been arguments between
involved parties as to whether the steps between the road and the forecourt
meet current safety design standards. It is not clear whether these issues have
been resolved or if any further work will be required
The wall and railings at the
southern end of the forecourt which did not show on planning approvals and do a
wonderful job of obstructing access at what is already a pinch point in the
paving. Ealing Council are pursuing the matter, but as yet there is no
The door to the new waiting room on
platforms 2/3 is not compliant with disability access standards but new
components are expected soon, For now the door is left open when the waiting
room is in use.
The large cage surrounding the
air-conditioning unit on platform 2 that limits the platform width is due to be
reduced in size but there is no date for that to happen.
The new canopies on platforms 4 and
2/3 are being done by a different
contractor for the station operator, MTR Crossrail. They mostly represent an
improvement on the approved Crossrail design and may not require any new
planning permission so should resume shortly. UPDATE
- MTR have just informed us that the delays are due to being
reliant on track possessons but the work should be completed in April.
Then works will take place on platforms 2/3 to install new mid-platform
fences (as already done on some stations) to allow platform 3 width to
The new roof on the lower part of
Villiers House should be completed by late summer and the work should not affect
passenger access to the station.
Some form of public consultation is
expected on Ealing Broadway public realm work outside the station, but details are unclear. Initial
work will be funded by Ealing Council rather than by TfL.
On the brighter side of things,
there seems a high level of confidence that the central London part of
Crossrail should be open by the end of June. A through service from Ealing
Broadway to central London and out to Abbey Wood is expected before Christmas
