History Edit

Upper Halliford Halt was opened on 1 May 1944 by Southern for the Windmill Road industrial zone which then had a wartime factory of the British Thermostat Company, manufacturing parts for the bombing of Germany. The second platform was opened on 6 May 1946.[1]

The platforms are linked by a devoted footbridge. The station building is only used for maintenance so a ticket machine instead stands.

Platform 2 (the down platform, with services towards Shepperton) is being rebuilt, with work due to finish in November 2021.[2]

  • SW: immediately, to the flat, residential end of Upper Halliford Road.
  • SE: two clambering/sloped paths to the west pavement of bridge of Upper Halliford Road (over motorway and railway).
  • E: under the southern bridge's ramp, to the north side of Nursery Road.

Services Edit

The weekday off-peak service from the station is:

From Monday to Saturday, four additional early morning rush-hour trains to Waterloo are routed via Twickenham and Richmond. Three additional evening rush-hour trains from Waterloo arrive via that route.

On Sundays services, hourly only, start later and finish earlier than other days.[3]
