The latest government figures have revealed the busiest train stations in Havering last year.

Office for Rail and Road (ORR) data looks at the number of people entering and exiting every train station in the country, including the six stations for which data was collected at in Havering.

Its figures show Liverpool Street in London overtook Waterloo as the most used station in Great Britain, which the ORR attributed to the opening of the Elizabeth Line.

But what about in Havering? Here are the most used stations from April 2022 to March 2023.

Transport for London's Elizabeth line director Howard Smith praised the link as a factor for increased train use.

"The Elizabeth line has been a transformational new railway for London, connecting east and west through 10 modern stations, with around 4.3 million journeys being made each week and more than 270 million journeys since it opened last year," Mr Smith added.
