The Anonymous Widower

A Short Walk Around Ilford Station

Several reports like this one in New Civil Engineer, have talked about a rebuild of Ilford station for Crossrail. This picture shows how it could look.

As the station now has a new entrance on York Road, I went for a walk around the station.

I walked up the stairs at the London end of the station, through the new entrance and then circled to the front entrance, where I reentered the station.

This Google Map shows the station.

If the standard of the York Road entrance to the station is anything to go by, I think that Ilford will have a last laugh in all those Essex jokes.

I wonder how much the footfall in the Exchange Shopping Centre will increase when Crossrail opens.
