New Ilford Crossrail station revealed

Ilford station

Network Rail has revealed a first look at the new Crossrail station proposed for Ilford.

The plans for a new building with a glass façade have been submitted to the London Borough of Redbridge. Longer platforms are also planned to accommodate the Elizabeth line services that will run from May next year. They will run at a rate of 12 per hour from May 2019.

The station has recently seen a new ticket hall open on York Road as part of the upgrades.

“These major improvements will make travelling through Ilford station a vastly better experience for the many thousands of people who use it every day. The proposals for the striking façade and new, spacious ticket hall are designed to underline the importance of the station and of the Elizabeth line to the local area,” said Crossrail surface director Matthew White.

The new station was designed by Atkins. Associate architect Mark Woodcock said: “The new station design seeks to become the starting point for a wider regeneration plan for the London Borough of Redbridge. It is designed to be a significant presence, not only visible from Cranbrook Road, but also from Balfour Road and Ilford Hill, from where the station with its sloping and projecting curved roofline and glazed lift tower is intended to act as a common converging point from these routes.”
