Seven Kings Station

A number of improvements are being delivered at Seven Kings station in preparation for the new Elizabeth line service, including new signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV.

Transport for London has successfully completed refurbishment work to the ticket hall.  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.  Construction of the foundations for the new footbridge, lifts and walkway are nearing completion.  Installation of the steel work will start in the autumn during a series of planned closures of the railway.

The main works to the station are due to be completed in Spring 2018.

Crossrail has also been working with the London Borough of Redbridge on proposals for improvements to the area around the station. Early proposals were published in 2014.


In May 2015, TfL took over the operation of the stopping services from Seven Kings station. 

New trains are now being gradually 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. An additional four trains per hour will run between Gidea Park and Liverpool Street, westward in the morning peak and eastward in the evening peak.
