Shenfield Station

A number of improvements are being delivered at Shenfield station in preparation for the new Elizabeth line services, including:

  • A new bay platform (platform 6) for Elizabeth line trains
  • Platform extensions to accommodate the new 200 metre long Elizabeth line trains
  • New station signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV.

In addition to the station improvements, new sidings have been constructed to the east of the station and significant trackwork has been carried out to improve reliability and increase capacity.

Crossrail has also worked with Brentwood Borough Council on proposals for improvements to the area around the station. Early proposals were published in 2014.


Since May 2015, Transport for London has been operating the stopping services from Shenfield station.

New Elizabeth line services 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, Shenfield station will be served by 12 Elizabeth line services an hour in each direction. Fast services into Liverpool Street will be unaffected by the introduction of the new Crossrail service.
