Kew Bridge Railway Station

Facts and Figures

Kew Bridge railway station is a railway station in Brentford and Gunnersbury, in the London Borough of Hounslow, and is in Travelcard Zone 3. The station and all trains serving it are operated by South West Trains. The station was named after the nearby Kew Bridge. The station, on the Hounslow Loop Line, is on the active (southern) limb of the Kew Bridge railway triangle. It was opened in 1849 by the London and South Western Railway (LSWR). The North & South Western Junction Railway in a spirit of affording LSWR access to Fenchurch Street operated its admittedly rival 'Kew' station (1853-1866) on the western curve. From 1862 the companies cooperated: the junction railway company building additional Kew Bridge platforms (closed 1940), the LSWR having constructed the eastern curve itself. There are currently no passenger services on the eastern and western curves, but both have been proposed by the London Borough of Hounslow for Crossrail and also for Zone 3 Overground Orbirail. The football stadium redevelopment plan includes space for additional platforms on the other curves. Britain's largest cycle manufacturer, Brompton Bicycle, is based behind the station, along the northeast edge of the railway triangle. Nearby attractions include the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, the London Museum of Water & Steam and the Musical Museum, Brentford.
