Train sta­tion ‘will be a land­mark’

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

RAIL pas­sen­gers of the fu­ture are get­ting a glimpse right now of a vi­sion for Hayes and Har­ling­ton sta­tion.

New images re­leased by Cross­rail last week show a light and airy, glass and steel build­ing with steps, lifts, wait­ing ar­eas and a cof­fee shop.

Cross­rail, which has ap­plied to Hilling­don Coun­cil for plan­ning per­mis­sion for the sta­tion, has stated the dis­tinc­tive new glass and steel struc­ture is in­tended to cre­ate a land­mark.

A bright, spa­cious ticket hall will pro­vide a more wel­com­ing en­vi­ron­ment and a range of other im­prove­ments will be made to the sta­tion.

The build­ing, de­signed by Ben­netts As­so­ciates, will be sit­u­ated im­me­di­ately to the north of the present sta­tion and will re­place a com­mer­cial prop­erty.

Ju­lian Lipscombe, di­rec­tor of Ben­netts As­so­ciates, said: “The sig­na­ture pro­ject­ing roof not only es­tab­lishes a civic pres­ence, but also draws all di­rec­tions of ap­proach to­gether into a leg­i­ble and up­lift­ing route through the glazed ticket hall to the plat­forms beyond.”
