The Elizabeth line is London's newest railway

Formerly know as TfL Rail, The Elizabeth line is now open.

It stretches more than 100km from Reading and Heathrow in the west, through central tunnels across to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east.

The new railway built by Crossrail Ltd will stop at 41 accessible stations - 10 of them new - and is expected to serve up to 200 million people each year.
When fully open capacity will increase by 10%, reducing congestion and crowding. 

With Southeastern connections at Abbey Wood and Woolwich Arsenal, journey times across the capital will be slashed. The journey time from Abbey Wood to Paddington has been halved to just 29 minutes.

It is a fast, frequent service. Trains will run every five minutes between Paddington and Abbey Wood from 06.30 and 23.00 Monday to Saturday. 

The Elizabeth line offers a whole host of new travel opportunities across east and west London or beyond Paddington to Heathrow and the West Country.
