Seven Kings Station

Seven Kings Station

A number of improvements have been delivered at Shenfield station in preparation for the new Elizabeth line services.


  • A new footbridge and lifts are now available, providing step-free access from street level to all platforms
  • New station lifts signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV
  • Platforms and waiting shelters have been refurbished
  • The brighter, more open ticket hall has been redecorated inside and out - the space now benefits from new accessible ticket office windows as well as improved customer information

The main works to the station were completed by TfL in 2018.

Seven Kings station is also now step-free from platform to street.

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


Other improvement work continues in preparation for the Elizabeth line with the focus now on completing the footbridge and lifts that will provide step-free access from street to platform level.   


In May 2015, TfL took over the operation of the stopping services from Seven Kings 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. In addition, four services per hour will run between Gidea Park and Liverpool Street main line station, westward in the morning peak and eastward in the evening peak.
