Hanwell Station to get extra entrance

Hanwell Station is to have its second entrance reopened for the first time since it was bricked up in the 1970s.

From September work will begin on the £300,000 project to revive the abandoned entrance on Station Approach. The work also includes new paving, upgraded lighting, new CCTV cameras, a new canopy, cycle parking and new seating.

The second entrance was originally closed amid security fears, but the area has since changed and restoring the original design was identified as a key priority to improve access to the station and ease congestion.

The work to open the southern entrance of the Grade II listed building has been given listed building consent and approval from English Heritage.

Councillor Bassam Mahfouz, cabinet member for transport and environment, said: “We are improving access to public transport across the borough and the new entrance will make Hanwell Station easier to use and give people better access to Crossrail when it arrives.”
