ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM GIDEA PARK
In May 2015, TfL took over the operation of the stopping services from Gidea Park station. New Class 345 trains are in use between Shenfield and Liverpool Street. The majority are currently seven-car long, with an upgrade programme due in the autumn of 2021 to increase these trains to nine-car (which is the full length of train for Elizabeth line services when it opens in the first half of 2022).
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.
