Answer for Ealing Broadway Crossrail station

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Ealing Broadway is a mainline station. The lift designs at this station, owned by the Department for Transport (DfT), confirm with DfT standards, not the London Cycling Design Standard. The two lifts to platform 4/5 are both 1.6m x 1.6m, which is the DfT and Network Rail standard lift size.

The lift to Platform 2/3 will be 1.6m x 2m. This was increased from the 1.6m x 1.6m standard to accommodate additional capacity and will provide a greater floor area than the 1.2m x 2.3m specified in the London Cycling Design Standard. The Elizabeth line will serve platforms 3 & 4.
