Work to construct a new entrance to West Ham station will see superstructure construction commence in January 2024.
A report from Transport for London states work is expected to complete with the entrance opening in July 2025 – though that is depending on wider site works.
Berkeley Homes are constructing 3,847 homes to the east of the station. In half-yearly financial results revealed today revealing a £298 million 6 month profit they do highlight they’ve cut back on completions, so whether that occurs at West Ham impacting the station remains to be seen.
TfL do state progress this year wasn’t great: “Progress in 2023 has been slow due to complexities in closing out several design matters which could only be addressed once Berkeley Homes appointed their principal contractor”.
New towers have risen which can hardly be missed when passing through.
The station serves the DLR, Jubilee, District, Hammersmith & City lines plus c2c trains.
A bridge across the station has already been installed related to upgrade works.
West Ham has previously seen the least development of all stations along the eastern end of the Jubilee line until this project commenced. Thousands of homes are underway around other stations such as Stratford, North Greenwich, Canary Wharf and Canada Water.
