|Ealing's Secure Rail Stations|
National scheme recognises safety measures
Passengers who use Ealing's railway stations should be reassured to hear that they have been given secure station accreditation.
The latest First Great Western (FGW) stations to achieve the secure mark include: Ealing Broadway, West Ealing, Drayton Green, Castle Bar Park and South Greenford.
This means that all FGW operated stations in the Thames Valley area are now secure status accredited and 194 out of 210 across our network.
Station Manager for the Greenford branch line stations, Dean Haynes said:
“FGW are continually looking at ways to improve our stations and improve access to the full range of services that we can offer.
“In the last year over £85 million has been invested across our network of 210 stations, by working with rail industry partners, the DfT, and local authorities.
“FGW are continually looking at ways to improve our stations and access to the full range of services that we can offer. This audit recognises that commitment and it’s great to be able to display this certificate of accreditation.”
The secure station accreditation scheme is led by the British Transport Police in conjunction with the Department for Transport.
It is a national scheme designed to recognise measures taken to improve station security and reassure passengers and staff that consistent efforts are being made to deter crime and anti-social behaviour.
