New Measures To Ease Gunnersbury Station Congestion
Agreement between TfL and Network Rail will create space
Local MP Mary Macleod has said new measures are to be taken to ease congestion at Gunnersbury Station.
The latest meeting of the Gunnersbury Station Action Team has heard that 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.
Mary said: “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”.
She said she will continue to push Hounslow Council to provide further funding for the redesigning of the station and will call for a meeting between them, Ealing Council and Blackstone to ensure that the momentum built up so far is not lost.
