Goodmayes Station

Goodmayes Station

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

  • Platform extensions to accommodate the new 200m long Elizabeth line trains
  • Three new lifts to provide step-free access to all platforms
  • Improvements to the existing footbridge
  • Improvements to the ticket hall    
  • New station signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV.

The platform extensions are nearing completion.  The remainder of the work is scheduled to be completed in early 2018.

TfL has completed an external refurbishment of the ticket office building.

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


In May 2015, TfL took over the operation of the stopping services from Goodmayes 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 12 trains an hour will run between Shenfield and central London, calling at all stations. An additional four trains an hour will run between Gidea Park and the existing Liverpool Street station, westward in the morning peak and eastward in the evening peak.
