Romford Station

Romford station will benefit from significant upgrades including improvements to the station façade, a better ticket hall and new lifts.

Improvements that will be delivered as part of the Crossrail programme include: 

  • A substantially improved ticket hall with revised entrances
  • New lifts for step-free access to platforms
  • Platform extensions to accommodate the new 200 metre long Crossrail trains 
  • New station signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV.

The Schedule 7 plans & specifications covering the refurbishment of the ticket hall at Romford and the installation of lifts for step-free access to the platforms have been approved by the local authority.  Click here for more information on the approved plans.

Crossrail has also worked 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 Romford 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 trains an hour will run between Gidea Park and Liverpool Street main line station, westwards in the morning peak and eastwards in the evening peak.
