Brentwood station

Brentwood station

A number of improvements are being delivered at Brentwood station in preparation for the new Elizabeth line services, including:

  • Platforms extensions to accommodate the new 200m long Elizabeth line trains
  • New station signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV
  • Trackwork to improve the reliability of the service.

The work, being delivered by Network Rail, is well underway and is expected to finish within the next few months.

In addition to the station improvements, Crossrail has been working with Brentwood Borough Council on proposals for improvements to the area around the station. Early proposals were published in 2014.
