The Mayor of London, Boris Johnson: Stop Piccadilly line trains at Turnham Green station throughout the day.

Stopping the Piccadilly line at Turnham Green throughout the day will improve lives for local residents. It is critical to providing a good level of service, catering to increasing demand, improving safety at the station, increasing connectivity and regenerating our high streets locally.

Over the years many reasons have been given as to why the Piccadilly line can’t stop at Turnham Green – but local campaigners have consistently refused to accept that it is impossible! The Piccadilly line already stops at the station early mornings and late nights and we believe that this can be extended throughout the day.

The distance between Hammersmith and Acton Town is 4.4km. That is the longest distance between stops on the entire Piccadilly line and more than three times longer than the average distance of 1.42km between stops. It therefore makes sense to allow trains to stop at Turnham Green all day.

It is crucial that as many of us as possible let the Mayor and Transport for London know what we think - the more people that respond the better! It is clear that thousands of residents support the Piccadilly line stopping at Turnham Green. Local residents deserve the best transport links and we must remain determined to make that a reality.

Please sign this petition and help change the lives of local people across Chiswick.

      I live in the area. it would knock 20 mins off most journeys. The distance between Hammersmith and Acton town is huge. The trains dawdle outside of Acton Town station in any case so TFL reasons of not wanting to disrupt the schedule by stopping trains at Turnham Green are clearly an excuse. Morover at peak times the platform at Turnham Green, one of the busiest stations in the area gets overcrowded and accidents can easily happen

      it would reduce my 80 minute daily commute by 15-20 minutes and stop me freezing on the platform in winter!

      I stand on the platform cold everyday to go two stops to Acton town to get the Piccadilly Line. If the Piccadily Line stopped at Turnham green it would cut 15-20 minutes off my journey!

      It is very frustrating standing on the platform waiting for the district line when two or three piccadilly line trains pass through the station why?
