What did the officials say?

Ewen Morrison, Senior Programme Manager for Network Rail said:

Our teams are busy enhancing stations west of London in readiness for the Elizabeth line. The new or upgraded ticket halls will offer improved passenger flow, spacious new concourses and enhanced accessibility with lifts and footbridges that will bring step-free access to all platforms serving the Elizabeth line.

“We have been progressing with works on the platforms and behind the hoardings at these stations and we encourage residents and local businesses to come along to a drop-in session and find out more.”
