Stratford Station

Stratford station requires relatively little work to facilitate the new Elizabeth line service, but passengers will benefit from new signage, help points and customer information screens.

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

From May 2017, new trains will be introduced between Shenfield and Liverpool Street.

Description of work:

The north-east section of the Crossrail route runs from Stratford in east London through to Shenfield in Essex. Stratford Station requires relatively little work to facilitate the new Crossrail service, but will benefit from new signage, help points and customer information screens. When the full Crossrail service commences in 2019, Crossrail will provide 12 trains per hour from and towards central London during peak periods. These will be all station stopping services replacing the existing metro service.
