Network Rail has announced that the first part of a project on the railway line in Hounslow has been completed.
Platforms at Feltham station have been lengthened by 40 metres to allow 10 car trains to stop here on the London Waterloo to Reading via Ascot route.
The project to improve the station started in August 2018 and is expected to be completed in September 2020.
The project includes a new station entrance linked directly to the bus stops by fully accessible ramps.
London Borough of Hounslow is upgrading the surrounding highway and widening Hounslow road bridge.
What did the officials say?
Mark Killick, Wessex route director, said:
“The first part of the project to improve passenger journeys in Feltham is complete.
“It will bring much-needed relief for commuters and passengers on the busy Reading line from London Waterloo, and I want to apologise for the disruption while the work took place.
“We will press ahead, working with our partners to deliver better journeys for passengers.”
