The station was opened as Heathway in 1932 as part of the London, Midland and Scottish Railway, with services provided by the District line from the outset. It changed to its present name in 1949, and the 1930s station buildings were extensively refurbished during 2005 and 2006.
The station is of similar design to Upney and Elm Park, with the platforms arranged on a central island and with a long sloping walkway connection to the ticket hall.
Dagenham Heathway is the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham’s second town centre.
Artworks are currently installed at the following stations
Was pleased to have this pointed out to me yesterday evening, not having seen one in Dagenham yet! Love the idea for this project but haven’t seen information about it in many places – shame some people may miss this completely – is there a plan to put one on a tube map?
Notice some of the designs appear more simple, could the complexity of the journey to the centre of the maze be indicative of waiting times for a tube and/or journey times… ;-)
Glad you spotted one. there is a leaflet that we’re displaying in stations – which is being rolled out (where posible) once artworks have been installed. There is also an ongoing poster campaing across the network which began in February. We’re also undertaking a whole range of community engagements, specifically work with schools to spread the word. But individuals like yourself can help with this too..
