The station was extensively rebuilt due to a new road underpass being built to eliminate a level crossing , the work started just before the Second World War but was stopped in 1940 due to wartime priorities, the station was hit during a bombing raid in 1944 which also delayed matters. The work was finally completed after the end of the war and Leytonstone became a tube station in 1947, acting as the Central Line's Eastern terminus for a few months until the opening of the stretch from Woodford to Newbury Park.
Leytonstone has 3 platforms, the centre platforms usually being used for West bound services but also terminating East bound trains.
