Alternatively remove the western car park, build a new entrance, wide bridge with two staircases down and new northbound platform there accessible from CHR and Wellesley and close the old one/keep it for peak times exit only. Build housing on the rest of the site to defray the cost.

The basic problem is the cramped nature of the single platform and staircase, and a tunnel under CHR doesn't help that at all, even if you could miraculously persuade property developers to cough up out of the goodness of their hearts.

As to whether TfL can afford it, they've just contributed 30m to a daft 'Garden Bridge', apparently because Joanna Lumley has known the Mayor since he was four. I reckon I could solve Gunnersbury for 30m. TfL's priorities are curiously unfocused at the moment, and they seem to have no real plan or leadership.

[another option is to build a new Overground station on the curve west of the nature reserve and link that to Chiswick Park via a path and bridge, to displace some of the load, particularly for the new CBP northern buildings]
