Acton Main Line is being upgraded into a new bright, modern station building. The transformation of the station will be carried out by Network Rail as part of the Crossrail project in preparation for the arrival of Elizabeth line services. A range of other major improvements will be made to the station, including:
- New lifts to provide step-free access to both platforms
- Platform extensions to accommodate the new 200 metre long trains
- A new platform canopy, lighting, customer information screens, station signage, help points and CCTV.
The striking new glass and steel ticket hall, which has been designed by Bennetts Associates on behalf of Network Rail, will be located on Horn Lane.
From the end of 2017 the station will be run by Transport for London as part of London’s integrated transport network.
Kev Dendy, Marketing and Strategy Director at Donseed, says: “Donseed biometric time and attendance tablets have been used on many rail projects, both platform side and line improvements. The tablets are great for projects that involve remote workers as well as for fixed sites.”
