Crossrail Latest: Construction of London’s Newest Railway Enters Final Stages
New images released by Crossrail Limited highlight construction progress across the route to deliver London’s newest railway, the Elizabeth line.
Construction of the Elizabeth line has entered its final stages; fit-out of the new Elizabeth line stations and tunnels is advanced with intensive work underway.
From the summer, Crossrail will begin handing over the completed infrastructure to Transport for London, who will lead the railway’s testing and commissioning phase ahead of the opening of the Elizabeth line in December this year.
Andrew Wolstenholme, Chief Executive, Crossrail, said:
“After almost a decade of hard work from tens of thousands of men and women across the country, the construction of the Elizabeth line has entered its final stages. This fantastic set of new images shows the huge amount that has been achieved, and gives passengers a glimpse of their new railway ahead of its opening at the end of the year.”
Howard Smith, Operations Director for the Elizabeth line, said:
“Seeing our striking new stations take shape is an extremely exciting time for all involved in the historic Elizabeth line project. We look forward to opening these dynamic new spaces to Londoners and visitors when we launch the railway in nine months’ time.”
