Feltham platform lengthening and level crossing closure
Network Rail will begin work at Feltham station in September to install a second entrance on platform 1, providing step-free access and improved interchange with local buses. The additional entrance is planned to open in March 2019.
From March 2019 work will start on extending both platforms at the station, as well as carrying out work to close the level crossing on Bedfont Lane Feltham West level crossing (Bedfont Lane) and install a new step-free footbridge.
Network Rail will be holding three drop-in events for residents and their passengers at Feltham Station where they will set out their plans in more detail. The project managers will also be available to answer any questions during these drop-in events. These events are as follows:
- Wednesday 15 August, from 3:30pm to 7pm at Feltham Station.
- Thursday 6 September, from 11am to 5pm at Assembly Hall, Feltham.
- Saturday 8 September, from 9:30am to 1:30pm at Assembly Hall, Feltham

Hounslow Road closed
Hounslow Road is partially closed to traffic and pedestrians between Hanworth Road and New Road for ten months. This will allow the council to undertake major work to improve traffic, travel, transport links and road safety in Feltham.
Town centre traffic, including buses, is being diverted via Browells Lane and Hanworth Road. These diversions are expected to cause significant delays during peak travel times.
Residents and visitors are advised to revise their route, travelling at different times of the day or using a different route if they do not need to access the town centre. Pedestrian access to all shops and business will be maintained.
You can download a leaflet with key information about diversions, changes to bus routes and more information.
You can download a map which shows where to catch your bus.
Check before you travel
To avoid delays, view the junction of Uxbridge Road and Browells Lane on the Jam Cam by searching for Feltham.
Why are we doing this?
South Western Railway has introduced ten carriage trains to increase capacity between London Waterloo and Reading, and proposes to increase the number of services from December 2018.
The closure of Hounslow Road between New Road and Hanworth Road will:
- allow the council to widen the highway;
- introduce traffic lights at the New Road junction and
- carry out improvements to the existing Hanworth Road junction.
To ensure residents can still gain easy access between Bedfont and Feltham town centre, Network Rail will build a new pedestrian/cycle bridge over the railway line and renovate the public space outside the station. Until this bridge is constructed, the level crossing on Bedfont Lane will remain open for pedestrians, cyclists and southbound traffic until after Hounslow Road has reopened.
