Feltham Town Centre Traffic and Transport Improvements

Feltham station redevelopment : Network Rail

The first phase of the work began in September with the installation of a second entrance on platform 1, providing step-free access and an improved interchange with local buses. The additional entrance is planned to open in summer 2019.

The improvements are being delivered in partnership with Hounslow Council and Transport for London (TfL) to reduce the time trains spend on platforms, giving passengers easier journeys and to create a safer, more accessible station for the community.

From March 2019, work will start to extend both platforms at the station, as well as work to close Feltham West level crossing (Bedfont Lane) and install a new step-free footbridge as part of our plan to deliver a safer and better railway. Additionally, the new footbridge will provide people with continued step-free access between Bedfont Lane and Feltham Town Centre.

To install a new step-free footbridge it will be necessary to remove the existing ramped footbridge. When the crossing is closed, step-free access will be via Feltham station. Stepped access will be provided via a temporary footbridge by the crossing site. 

The equipment used during the construction is likely to cause some disturbance, for which we apologise in advance. Every effort will be made to keep noise levels to a minimum where possible and Network Rail staff have been briefed to work responsibly in the local community.

If you have any questions about the work carried out by Network Rail, please visit www.networkrail.co.uk or call their 24-hour helpline on 03457 11 41 41.
