Stratford station entrance work continues in advance of planned spring opening

Construction work on a new entrance to Stratford station beside the Jubilee line platforms continues ahead of a planned spring 2024 opening.

The entrance will face Gibbins Road and the Carpenters estate which is line for major redevelopment.

In the above photo, the entrance will be located to the left of Pret. The site was previously used as a car park and storage area.


A total budget of £8.4 million is allocated with Newham Council allocating £1m of Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) revenue, the LLDC spending £3.4m from s106 and CIL income plus £4m from the Greater London Authority’s Strategic Infrastructure Fund.

New entrance

Plans to redevelop the Carpenters estate have been rumbling around for well over a decade with little to show. The latest is that some existing buildings will be renovated while others demolished.

Overall housing totals will increase from 710 to 2,152 with 44 per cent of existing homes remaining.

Looking towards Carpenters estate

The estate comprises three taller blocks (two visible above) with low-rise elements across the site. Two of the tower blocks will remain.

In October 2023 a Transport for London report had the project set to complete during financial year 2023/24. Not long until that’s over.


Running a site takes much time and cost a lot of money. Adverts are far from enough to cover it and my rent.

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    • A useful route to/from The London Stadium.

    • I have been to Stratford lots of times and it does get very busy including at rush hour and when West Ham United are playing at home nearby. Unlike Stratford International station which Southeastern Highspeed trains do stop at that is lot more spacious. I wish that Stratford general station would be redeveloped to make it more spacious.
