After a successful Liberal Democrat campaign where we have pressed Ealing Council to take action, they are starting to move in the right direction.
They have not gone the full way they need to, to ensure that Ealing Broadway has a train station and transport interchange as it deserves. The current plans now include installing a lift earlier than they had previously wanted. The original plans, however, encompassed two escalators and four lifts and a pedestian footbridge.
Liberal Democrats who have been handing out petition leaflets over the past few weeks as well as lobbying politicians in Ealing over the past year hope the Council aim higher. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity which would breath life back into Ealing Broadway which has been flagging over recent years. There have been a lot of shops that have closed because the area is more run down.
