Shenfield Station

Shenfield Station

A number of improvements are being delivered at Shenfield station in preparation for the new Elizabeth line services. All of this work is being undertaken by Transport for London (TfL).


Network Rail has upgraded tracks, signalling and overhead lines, and built a new platform. These improvements will mean more reliable services across the line. They also make way for the new trains to run in and out of the brand-new platform.

In addition to the station improvements, new sidings have been constructed to the east of the station.

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


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

Crossrail has also worked with Brentwood Borough Council on proposals for improvements to the area around the station.


Since May 2015, TfL has been operating the stopping services from Shenfield 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, 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.
