Harold Wood Station

Harold Wood Station

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

  • A new footbridge over the tracks with new staircases
  • Three new lifts to provide step-free access to every platform
  • Platform extensions to accommodate the new, 200m long Elizabeth line trains
  • New platform lighting
  • New station signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV.

The main works to the station, were carried out by Network Rail and completed in 2018.

Transport for London has successfully completed the refurbishment of the waiting room.  New windows have been installed to the south elevation. 

Crossrail has also been working with the London Borough of Havering on proposals for 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 Harold Wood station. 

New 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.
