The Crossrail Elizabeth line is estimated to be complete by December 2019 and approximately 200 million annual passengers will use the first Elizabeth Line services through central London. Not only will the Elizabeth Line reduce journey times across London, easing congestion and offering better connections, it also has the potential to change the way people travel around the capital.
Maidenhead station will see some significant improvements as part of the Crossrail programme, benefitting from platform extensions to accommodate the new 200-metre-long Elizabeth line trains. The work began in 2014 and the station has remained open throughout the works.
From December 2019, four trains an hour (six at peak times) will allow passengers to travel right through central London without the need to change trains.
- Maidenhead to Bond Street: fro 59 minuets to 39 minuets
- Maidenhead to Liverpool street: from 1 hour 11 minuets to 46 minuets
- Maidenhead to Reading: from 16 minuets to 12 minuets
The Elizabeth Line will make it easier to travel around and do business in London and the South East linking the capitals major commercial and business districts, Heathrow, the West End, the City and Canary Warf, more effectively than ever before.
When fully open in 2019 the 75 mile high speed Crossrail route will bring an extra 1.5 million people to within 45 minuets of central London. The Crossrail project is also helping to drive regeneration along the length of the route and Maidenhead council has recently announced plans for a £2bn regeneration of the town centre.
