|Acton Main Line Crossrail Station Close To Completion|
Final snagging works taking place this month in readiness for handover
The long delayed opening of the new Acton Main Line station looks set to take place soon
Network Rail says it is in the final stages of the project and just about ready to handover the station to the train operator and station manager, MTR Elizabeth line. They expect to be welcoming passengers ‘in the next couple of months.’
It is completing the final stages of the ceiling fitting, installing the platform shelters and finishing the platform reinstatement work, testing and commissioning the lifts and electrical work, and undertaking the installation of facilities for the public. After some final snagging work the station will be ready to go.
The installation of the passenger lifts is complete and they have been tested. The resurfacing work for platforms 2/3 and 4 has continued and the metalwork and handrails were added to the platform stairs. Internal doors have been installed and the glass sliding doors were added to the station entrance,
The Acton station is expected to be one of the first of the upgraded stations to be operational on the western section of the line with Ealing Broadway and West Ealing not far behind. Work continuing over the festive period has allowed the projects to progress despite the national lockdown.
