Grays railway station is a railway station located in the town of Grays in the borough and unitary authority of Thurrock in the East of England. Although outside London fare zones 1 to 6, the station became part of the Oyster card pay-as-you-go rail network in January 2010.[3]

History

It was opened in 1854 as part of the London, Tilbury and Southend Railway. Until the early 1900s the station was known as 'Grays Thurrock'. In February 2005, the station environment was refurbished, in particular the subway linking the platforms, as well as the surrounding highway infrastructure.

In January 2006 the footbridge linking Grays High Street at either side of the railway was declared unsafe and closed due to structural problems with the supports and bracing, which had to be temporarily supported with scaffolding underneath the stair flights. A hoarding was subsequently erected to this scaffolding. The footbridge reopened at the beginning of May 2006. Works to replace the stair flights are currently being developed by Network Rail, with implementation likely in late 2011. Although located at the end of the platforms, there is no station access at this point.

During 2008 and 2009 the four-car bay platform was extended to hold 8 car trains.[4]
