Liverpool Street station is undergoing major redevelopment to increase capacity, improve accessibility and upgrade interchanges as part of the building of Crossrail. The new station and Crossrail’s services will help ease overcrowding and support economic growth in the area.
Crossrail will open in phases. From Liverpool Street, services will interchange with London Underground’s Northern, Central, Metropolitan, Circle and Hammersmith & City lines, connections to Stansted Airport and Southend Airport and National Rail services.
The station will provide new entrances and ticket halls at both Liverpool Street and Moorgate and new longer platforms and interchange routes through the station.
The new ticket halls will relieve congestion, provide step-free access and seamless interchanges for the people who live, work and travel through the area.

URBAN REALM AND REGENERATION
The public space around the station will be re-modelled to provide welcoming, clear and open spaces for people to work and relax in, with wider pavements, more trees and seating.
New office and retail units on Moorgate and Liverpool Street will create additional working, shopping and eating venues in the area.

The most important archaeological site on the Crossrail route, excavations have revealed 2000 years of London’s past.
From a Roman road and timber buildings, to the ‘lost’ Walbrook River and the infamous Bedlam burial ground, the site is providing new insight into ancient Londoners’ lifestyles.
