The new Elizabeth line, which is expected to open in time for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, has been given an official map by Transport for London.
The Elizabeth line will reopen on May 24, 2022, after years of delays, according to London Transport. The new Tube and Crossrail will open in time for the Queen’s Jubilee Celebrations, subject to safety tests.
The £19 billion route, which was scheduled to open on December 9, 2018, has been delayed due to the effects of the coronavirus epidemic on construction and amended project timelines.
The Elizabeth line will run through the heart of London, with stops at Reading, Heathrow, Shenfield, and Abbey Wood on the outskirts. The new route, which TfL describes as “one of the most complex digital railways in the world,” mixes cutting-edge technology and design to service central London and commuter areas.
Crossrail’s goal is to connect commuter communities in London’s east and west to the city centre.
The route passes through well-known communities like Maidenhead, Slough, Ilford, and Brentwood.
TfL has issued an official map of the future Elizabeth line’s route. Click here for a high-resolution version of the map.
The new Crossrail line will cover 41 stations:
Hayes & Harlington
Acton Main Line
Tottenham Court Road
Heathrow Airport Terminals 2 & 3
Heathrow Airport Terminal 4
Heathrow Airport Terminal 5
From 6.30 a.m. to 11 p.m., Monday to Saturday, 12 trains every hour (one every 5 minutes) will travel between Paddington and Abbey Wood.
On Sundays, the line will not run; however, this will change in the autumn. On Sunday, June 5, 2022, between 8 a.m. and 10 p.m., a special service will be held to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.
