There was more progress this month at the latest meeting of the Gunnersbury Station Action Team, chaired by local MP Mary Macleod. In the latest developments, Network Rail and Transport for London (TfL) have reached an agreement on the position of the station furniture.
Under the new plans, the underground maps and the sheltered waiting area at the station will be moved further along the platform. This will create more space for passengers at the bottom of the stairs and ease congestion on the platform.
“I am encouraged to hear that Network Rail and TfL have agreed on a temporary solution to the problem of space at Gunnersbury. The progress we have made so far is very positive and I want to encourage all those with a stake in Gunnersbury to continue acting with the interests of passengers and local people at heart”.
Previously, Mary had urged Hounslow Council to look at ways it could support improvements to the station. She added:
“I will continue to push Hounslow Council to provide further funding for the redesigning of the station and I will call for a meeting between them, Ealing Council and Blackstone to ensure that the momentum built up so far is not lost.”
