Work continues on new Stratford station entrance

Construction work on a new entrance to Stratford station continues to trundle along with a completion date still expected by April 2024.

The entrance is located to the south west of the station, and is visible from the DLR platforms of the Bow Church branch which sees trains from Canary Wharf and Lewisham stations.

The project is costing £8.4 million with developer contributions via Section 106 and the Community Infrastructure Levy assisting. Newham Council have allocated £1m from CIL with the London Legacy Development Corporation providing £3.4m from s106 and CIL agreements.

An additional £4m is derived from the Greater London Authority’s Strategic Infrastructure Fund.

Station Update

An update on the project is given in a new TfL Investment Program report

“Mobilisation of the construction contractor has taken place and works are underway on delivering the urban realm and new station entrance.

“Worksite hoardings have been erected to separate the operational station from the works. We remain in close communication with scheme funders, the London Legacy Development Corporation and the London Borough of Newham as the works proceed.

“We continue to coordinate with Network Rail, which will be delivering, owning and maintaining a new customer lift connecting the Jubilee line concourse to the western subway, providing step-free access to other platforms in the station.

“This will allow the removal of the existing platform lift from the stairs leading to the subway, which will reduce congestion in the station and improve reliability. This work is scheduled for completion in 2023/24.”

The project will improve life for existing users through greater space within the station as well as those using the new entrance, which leads to Carpenters estate which is currently seeing upgrade work to one block.

Thousandso f new homes are planned in years to come.
