Acton Main Line Station Goes Step-Free With New Ticket Office

The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Ian Visits.

The title says it all.

It is top of the list of places that I need to visit.

These are some pictures, I took from the outside on the 21st March 2021.

Unfortunately, the station was closed on this Sunday and I could hear work going on behind the hoardings.

I took these pictures behind the hoardings a few days later.


  1. There are several nice details like seats by all the lifts.
  2. There are toilets, where you ask the staff to unlock them.
  3. There is still work to do, but nothing crucial for the operation of the station.

Will the two old sets of stairs be demolished?


I like it! And so did the staff, I spoke to!

  1. The news item on the TFL site suggests that West Acton will shortly be joined by two neighbouring stations –

    Works at West Ealing and Ealing Broadway stations will also be completing shortly with bright new, expanded ticket halls opening, which will provide more space for customers.

    So you need to decide to visit just West Ealing or wait until all three stations are completed.

    The lockdown has meant that I haven’t been to Ealing Broadway for a very long time but given its old layout it will be interesting to see how they have managed to make all the District line platforms accessible.

  2. When West Ealing goes step free it will be interesting if facilities for interchange to West Ealing to Greenford branch are improved with Greenford having its ascending lift access . Again whether interchange at Greenford between Central Line and Greenford branch will become more important.
