Heavy & Small Plant Hire for Domestic or Professional Landscaping Work in Romford, Mini Diggers, Essex & London
People have long been attracted to Romford due to it’s closeness to the Essex countryside while being relatively accessible to London city centre. They are also nearer to Southend which means lovely summer days relaxing at the seaside, or healthy brisk walks in the winter. These are some of the reasons that a new game changing rail scheme will prove extremely popular with many.
The Crossrail programme is delivering some very positive changes to stations like Romford, which will feature an impressive façade, an improved ticket hall and new lifts. The scheme named Schedule 7, will see the extensive refurbishment of the station including:-
- An upgraded ticket hall with repositioned entrances
- New lifts allowing maximum access for everyone
- Platform extensions due to the 200 metre long Crossrail trains
- New additions such as help points, signage, CCTV and customer information screens
Schedule 7 gained local authority approval with early proposals being published as early as 2014. From the end of 2019, passengers will be able to travel to and from central London without having to change trains, making journeys to work easier and faster. Locals have already started to enjoy a taste of the future, as the first state-of-the-art Elizabeth Line trains recently started running on the Shenfield to Liverpool Street. Crossrail has helped to instigate the town’s regeneration, and improvements to Romford town centre are currently being carried out. This is good news for businesses in the area too, as people are encouraged to travel here more frequently.
There is some exciting general construction going on in Romford also, with new homes being developed from one bed flats to five bedroom detached houses.
