Burnham station

A number of improvements in preparation for the new Elizabeth line services have already been delivered at Burnham including a new station information system, security systems and CCTV.


These improvements have been delivered by Network Rail.

The works include:

  • New platform benches have been installed
  • New canopy work has been completed

In addition to the station works, overhead electric wires have been installed on the line by Network Rail enabling new, electric trains to run through the station. Extensive track and signalling work has also been undertaken to improve reliability and increase capacity.


Network Rail's improvement work is due to finish when the Elizabeth line fully opens.

The works include:

  • Cutting back the station building canopy to accommodate new overhead electric wires
  • New signage, help points, customer information screens and CCTV
  • Upgrading the electricity supply

Network Rail has installed a lift at the station as part of the Access for All scheme, and Burnham station will be step-free from platform to street by December 2020.

The latest newsletters from Network Rail regarding progress on the western sections can be found here:


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.
