Thurrock Council and c2c have announced that they have started a joint redevelopment of Stanford-le-Hope station.
Work to demolish the 1960s ticket office and booking hall has now started. This is in preparation for building a new station including lifts, improved passenger facilities and integrated pedestrian, cycle and bus links.
The station will remain open and operational throughout these works. Passengers will be diverted through an alternative entrance at the end of the London-bound platform while the ticket office is being dismantled.
Customers will continue to be able to purchase a normal range of tickets. The ticket machines have been relocated and one is now positioned on each platform.
These can be used to purchase most tickets and to collect tickets bought online. Meanwhile, at times c2c staff will also be selling tickets using handheld devices. A summary of how you can buy the ticket you want is below.
New validators for Smartcards are also being fitted onto the platforms as a priority.
The station will continue to be staffed throughout the hours of service, with our staff providing information and customer service throughout.
