Romford Station

Romford Station

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


Transport for London (TfL) has completely remodelled the male and female toilets, with all new toilets, sinks and hand dryers. TfL have also moved the entrance to these facilities and took the opportunity to redecorate the waiting room.

  • New station signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV
  • Platform extensions to accommodate the new 200m long Elizabeth line trains
  • New platform seating has also been installed


Network Rail is carrying out work, which is due to be complete by December 2019, and includes:

  • Main entrance widened
  • New northern entrance
  • New lift to platform 1/2
  • New southern entrance
  • Lifts to ticket hall and platforms 3/4 and 5
  • Refurbished ticket hall
  • Canopy structures on all platforms are being redecorated and due for completion in July 2019

Romford station will be step-free from platform to street by December 2020.

Crossrail has also worked with the London Borough of Havering on proposals for improvements to the area around the station.


In May 2015, TfL took over the operation of the stopping services from Romford station. New TfL Rail 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.
