This new high speed cross London rail link is creating five new stations in the borough of Ealing, each with its own development opportunities. Southall, Hanwell, West Ealing, Ealing Broadway and Acton Main Line Crossrail stations will improve the transport connections of Ealing.
Direct connections between Ealing Broadway and Heathrow Airport will be 15 minutes, and Ealing
Broadway to the City will be 20 minutes. Eurostar services at Stratford will be easily accessible in less than half an hour.
Main construction work begins from 2010 on the line, with services beginning to run in 2018.
