Current works at Abbey Wood station

Network Rail is building the new station at Abbey Wood as part of the Crossrail programme.

Work has been underway in Abbey Wood since 2013.  The new station at Abbey Wood will include:

  • A bright, spacious concourse that leads directly onto a wide forecourt connecting the station to the Harrow Manorway flyover, which runs above the station
  • Two new ‘island’ platforms for Crossrail and North Kent services
  • Six lifts to help passengers get around the station and to provide step-free access to every platform.

Description of work:

Although we will be carrying out the majority of our work during normal daytime hours, due to safety reasons some of our work has to be carried out whilst trains are not running. This means undertaking some work outside our normal core hours (08:00 to 18:00), during the night and at weekends.
