A new footbridge leads from the ticket hall to platforms with three new lifts that provide step-free access to all five platforms at the station.

This is the sixth Transport for London (TfL) railway station to be upgraded to step-free access in the past seven months as part of the Crossrail project. In total there are now more than 200 step-free stations across the TfL network.

Hayes & Harlington station was originally opened in the 1800s and Network Rail has extended all the platforms to accommodate the Elizabeth line trains, which are more than 200 metres long.

Other improvements at the station include a redeveloped entrance and a spacious ticket hall with a wide gateline for tickets and contactless payments, new ticket machines and customer information screens.

New lifts, ticket machines and other station improvements have also been provided along the TfL Rail western route at Acton Main Line, West Ealing, Ealing Broadway, West Drayton and Southall since March this year.
