ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM GIDEA PARK
In May 2015, TfL took over the operation of the stopping services from Gidea Park station. New TfL Rail trains are being gradually introduced between Shenfield and Liverpool Street.
When the full route opens, passengers will be able to travel through central London without having to change trains.
At peak times 12 Elizabeth line services an hour will run between Shenfield and central London, calling at all stations. An additional four services an hour will run between Gidea Park and the existing Liverpool Street station, westwards in the morning peak and eastwards in the evening peak.
