The Anonymous Widower

Shenfield Station – April 1st 2017

It is perhaps around sixty days before the first part of Crossrail opens between Liverpool Street and Shenfield stations.

A lot of work has been done.

  • It would appear that space could have been made for an extra track most of the way between Brentwood and Shenfield station.
  • Is one going to be built to improve access to Platform 5 and the new Platform 6?
  • Platforms 3 and 4 would appear to have been lengthened substantially. The new Stadler Flirts may be longer than the current trains.
  • It looks like the stabling and reversing sidings are on the outside of the down line to Southend, which dives under the Great Eastern Main Line.

But there is still some work to do.
