Burnham station

A number of improvements have already been delivered by Network Rail in preparation for the new Elizabeth line service, including:

  • Cutting back the station building canopy to accommodate new overhead electric wires
  • Upgrading the electricity supply
  • New station information and security systems together with CCTV and improved passenger information facilities.

Network Rail is currently installing a lift at the station as part of the Access for All scheme. 

In addition to the station works, overhead electric wires have been installed on the line enabling new, electric trains to run through the station and extensive track and signalling work will improve reliability and increase capacity.


When the full route opens, up to four Elizabeth line trains an hour in each direction will serve Burnham, allowing passengers to travel right through central London without having to change trains.
