Southall station opened its new ticket hall and lifts for passengers on Thursday ahead of the arrival of the Elizabeth line next year.

The cross-capital route is set to start running trains from May 2022 and Southall station has been given a facelift ahead of the big date.

Network Rail has created a brighter, spacious station entrance with a new ticket hall built from glass and steel as well as a wider ticket gates.

It has also three new lifts and a new footbridge which provides step-free access to all four platforms at the station.


Hayes & Harlington is still to be completed.
