Marks Barfield Architects were appointed by Crossrail and the engineers Connell Mott McDonald to carry out a parliamentary feasibility study for Ilford station. With the emphasis on opening up new public space to create pleasant walking routes through this central area of Ilford, this project will be a principal station in the Crossrail development.
Acting as a significant hub, the site will link north and south, alleviating current pedestrian/traffic bottlenecks on the Cranbrook Road whilst significantly enhancing access to the proposed bus interchange. There is also the possibility that the station will be incorporated into the DLR extension and other new transport schemes such as the ELT.
