History

Pedestrian footbridge
The single track line through the area was opened in 1893 by the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway as part of a branch from Romfordmarker to Graysmarker via Upminster. By the late 20th century service on the line had been reduced to a relatively infrequent shuttle between Upminster and Graysmarker, calling only at Ockendonmarker. Following the opening of Lakeside Shopping Centremarker in 1990 a new single platform station was opened in 1995. Initially a free shuttle bus connected the station to the shopping centre, with a direct pedestrian bridge link replacing it in 2000. The shuttle train service was eventually extended beyond Upminster to Fenchurch Streetmarker and beyond Grays to Southend Centralmarker; with service levels increased to two trains an hour during railway operating hours. Usage is moderate for a suburban station and increasing; to expand capacity the buildings were rebuilt in 2006.
