From December 2019, up to four Elizabeth line trains an hour in each direction will serve Iver station, allowing passengers to travel right through central London without having to change trains.
Ivers newly built station will benefit from a number of improvements in preparation for Elizabeth line services, including a new information system, security systems and CCTV.
Transport for London will install a temporary ticket office, remove the existing ticket office, and a new ticket office and station building will be constructed alongside installation of new lift shafts to the existing footbridge span.
In addition to the station works overhead electric wires have been installed on the line enabling new electric trains to run through the station and extensive track and signalling work will improve reliability and increase capacity, Thorney Lane bridge near the station has also been replaced.
The calendar of works will commence from May 2018 and completion is expected by December 2019
The works schedules for the build are as follows:
Piling and foundation works are expected to be completed before Christmas
work on the steel superstructure will begin in the New Year
internal and external lifts are due to be fitted in the Summer of 2019
How will this schedule of work effect residents?
Monday – Friday 8am – 6pm and Saturday 8am until 1pm and residents should be aware that a start-up and shutdown period of one hour may be required before and after each period of working hours, and some night-time works will be required.
Most materials will be stored at Langley – 1 stop away
Operatives are to utilise public transport or project minibus
Iver Station is a commuter station, deliveries will be therefore restricted in peak hours
Rail deliveries wherever possible
Smaller loads to use Southern access route
Larger loads require access from North to avoid narrowing of roads
