Project Information:

Crossrail is a very important and exciting project for rail users in and around London and the South East. It's also the biggest civil construction project in Europe today.

The Crossrail Project is building the Elizabeth line to link Reading and Heathrow in the west with Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east, via new 21km tunnels under central London. This will increase London's rail capacity, cut passenger journey times across the city, encourage regeneration and generate significant employment opportunities.

This project is part of our London Railway Upgrade Plan, creating new connections and increasing capacity in peak hour by 30%.
