Work on significant improvements to Ilford station, in preparation for the Elizabeth line, will commence in January 2020.
The major upgrade will provide customers with a new station entrance, new ticket office and new lifts providing step-free access to the platforms.
To accommodate the works, the main station entrance on Cranbrook Road will close for most of 2020 and replaced with a temporary entrance and ticket office located close to the junction of Cranbrook Road and Ilford Hill.
Passengers will need to use this temporary entrance to reach the platforms but will need to allow extra time for their journey. The entrance on York Mews will remain open throughout the works.
TfL Rail operations director Howard Smith said: “This work at Ilford will provide customers with significant improvements in readiness for Elizabeth line services.
“With a bigger and brighter main entrance and new lifts, providing step-free access from street to platform for the first time, it will transform journeys for our customers at Ilford.”
The new entrance is expected to be ready for passengers to use in autumn 2020 although the main construction works will continue until the end of 2020.
