London Liverpool Street roof renewal

We’re renewing and refurbishing the roof at London Liverpool Street station.

London Liverpool Street station consists of 17 platforms, all providing services across the Anglia route.  

We are renewing and refurbishing the grade 2 listed building’s roof which covers platforms 1-10. This work includes the replacement of the life expired roof coverings, a full refurbishment of the roof rainwater system, plus full redecoration of the heritage structure and replacement of damaged glazing roof panels.  

Why are we carrying out these renewals?  

At Network Rail, we are all about putting the passenger first, and this roof renewal ensures we keep to that promise. Some of the current roof panels covering platforms 1-10 are over 45 years old and through general wear and tear and age, require changing to continue to provide weather protection and natural light into the station.   

During times of intense rainfall, the station’s concourse and retail area suffers from leaks falling from the damaged glazing roof panels which means we must put out buckets to catch the rain fall.  

The roof replacement will mean we have a brighter and cleaner environment for our everyone who uses the station.  

When will works begin?  

Work to replace the roof panels is expected to commence sometime in spring 2023 and is expected to take 3 years to complete (subject to change).

More information about our programme of work will be uploaded here in early 2023. Once complete, passengers and staff at Liverpool Street station will be able to enjoy a brighter and safer station environment free from leaks during wet weather.
