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 at the station are scheduled to be completed by autumn 2017.

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.

ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM HAROLD WOOD 

In May 2015, TfL took over the operation of the stopping services from Harold Wood 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.
