Crossrail 2019: A High Speed Travel Changing Times [Infographic]

Crossrail 2019

Crossrail 2019

The new Crossrail project currently under construction is one of the largest rail proposals the UK has seen in recent years. Set to be finished in 2019, this high frequency, high capacity railway service is currently halfway through construction and will bring huge improvements to several services between London and the South East. In order to service the new Crossrail trains, new stations are set to be built with extra platforms, as well as improvements at over 19 stations to reduce the time required to travel into London, and also to reduce the number of passengers who need to change services during their commute.

Liverpool Street, Canary Wharf and Bond Street are just a few of the stations in London that commuters will see improved journey times to. Passengers travelling from Burnham Station in Berkshire will see the biggest difference to their journey, with some routes into London experiencing as much as an hour off their overall journey time.

The first trains will begin to operate between Liverpool Street and Shenfield from May 2017, running through the central section in 2018 ahead of the full Crossrail route from Reading and Heathrow in the west to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east in 2019.
