The facility will provide people with a well-lit, safe and modern waiting area while cyclists will benefit from more parking spaces.
There is also a ramp to provide step-free access from Station Road to the ticket office and platforms.
“Despite the delays caused by the pandemic, I am very happy to see the station now fully reopened,” said Councillor Roger Ramsey, cabinet member for finance and property.
“These upgrades at Harold Wood Station will help to make a real difference to the people who move through the area every day, making it a much more pleasant journey and experience for the whole community.”
The upgrade is part of a wider program of improvements around the station which will be served by the new Elizabeth line.
Other improvements have been made at Romford and Gidea Park Stations thanks to funding from Transport for London (TfL).
Penny Rees, TfL’s head of network sponsorship, said: “It has been really positive to see the improvements that have transformed the area around Harold Wood station, complementing the work already delivered to provide step-free access and a refreshed ticket hall.
“The welcoming new public plaza will make it a more inviting area for those living and working in Harold Wood as well as visitors, ahead of the Elizabeth line opening.”
