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 in the autumn.

TfL successfully completed the refurbishment of the ticket office and waiting room in early 2017.  The canopy glazing at the main entrance has been replaced and platform 4 gateline works have also been completed.  The new CCTV and Customer Information Screen are now operational.  Redecoration of the lighting columns and fencing is due to commence in summer 2017. 


Since May 2015, TfL has been operating the stopping services from Brentwood station.

From summer 2017, new trains will be introduced between Shenfield and Liverpool Street.

From December 2019, when the route fully opens, passengers will be able to travel through central London without having to change trains.

At peak times, Brentwood station will be served by 12 trains an hour in each direction.
