Chadwell Heath station

Chadwell Heath station

A number of improvements are being delivered at Chadwell Heath station in preparation for the new Elizabeth line service, including:

  • Platform extensions to accommodate the new 200m long Elizabeth line trains
  • New platform lighting
  • Improvements to the ticket hall
  • New station signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV.

Most of this work has now been completed.

As well as the station improvements, an additional track has been installed to the east of the station to improve reliability. 

Transport for London has completed a full refurbishment of the ticket office.  The toilet facilities have also been refurbished and are now fully accessible.  New accessible ticket windows have been installed and the ticket gates have been relocated to increase staff visibility.

Crossrail has also been working with the London Borough of Redbridge on improvements to the area around the station. Early proposals were published in 2014.


In May 2015, Transport for London took over the operation of the stopping services from Chadwell Heath station. 

New Elizabeth line trains are being gradually introduced between Shenfield and Liverpool Street.

When the full route opens, passengers will be able to travel through central London without having to change trains.

At peak times 12 Elizabeth line services an hour will run between Shenfield and central London, calling at all stations. An additional four services an hour will run between Gidea Park and Liverpool Street main line station, westwards in the morning peak and eastwards in the evening peak.
