Leyton Station – 26th January 2023

Leyton station on the Central Line, is going to be upgraded as I wrote about in Leyton Station Set For £14m Upgrade.

I said this in the related post.

Leyton Station will receive step-free access and a new ticket hall and concourse thanks to £14 million from the government’s Levelling Up Fund.

I took these pictures today.


  1. The station has two waiting rooms and at least one toilet.
  2. The London-bound platform has a unique cloisters with a glass roof.
  3. A new ticket office and concourse, would improve the look of the station.
  4. Well-designed step-free access improves any station.
  5. The platforms are long.

I think it is a station with the potential to be one of the best.

These are a couple of thoughts.

The Red Bridge At The Eastern End Of The Station

This Google Map shows the station.


  1. The station buildings are in the South-West corner of the map.
  2. The red bridge is in the North-East corner of the map.
  3. Two trains are in the station, with plenty of space at both ends.

Would it be worthwhile and possible to add access to the station from the bridge?

Step-Free Access Between Train And Platform

This picture shows the current access between train and platform.

As the edge of the platforms will probably be realigned, would it be sensible to make the access better?
