Crossrail Limited is building the Elizabeth line – a new railway for London and the South East.
Europe’s largest infrastructure project, Crossrail is delivering 42km of new tunnels, 10 new stations and improvements at many more. The new accessible railway stretches from Reading and Heathrow in the west to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east and opens in phases as the Elizabeth line from December 2018.
This lecture outlines progress as the huge underground structures and individual systems are brought together to form the working railway, and Crossrail Limited is poised to start dynamic testing with the new rolling stock.
