Shenfield station is back on track
Upgrade work has been completed to prepare for Elizabeth line services between Liverpool Street and Shenfield in December 2018.
The improvements will allow the introduction of the first new trains for TfL Rail services later this month.
Additional capacity has been added to the railway at Shenfield to cater for the higher frequency service that will be provided once the Elizabeth line extends from Essex and through the central tunnels in 2019.
This includes a new dedicated platform and three new sidings at Shenfield to accommodate the new trains.
An amended TfL Rail service from Brentwood to Shenfield has resumed on weekdays, with three trains an hour. There is a full service at weekends. Trains have been terminating at Brentwood since January to allow Network Rail to carry out the work, with replacement buses provided for those travelling on to Shenfield.
A full service will resume from Monday 22 May.
