By 2020, the duration of trips from borough of Ealing could be halved, and real estate prices in this area will be doubled. The new east-west line, which is being built as part of the Crossrail project, will pass through the center of this borough with the stations of Acton, Ealing Broadway, West Ealing, Hanwell and Southall.
In addition to rising real estate prices from the construction of a new line, Ealing will also benefit from new retail chains that will open their stores here. These include the Jigsaw street fashion store, the Vapiano restaurant and the Planet Organic supermarket. "Thanks to the new line, I see no reason why Ealing and Acton will not become as popular in the west as Farringdon and Clarkenwell," - David Rosen, a senior partner at the London-based real estate agency Pilcher Hershman, says, - "I always say that the signs of a good place are architecture and metro stations. In the case of Ealing, this is the architecture and stations of Crossrail. "
