Crossrail is the largest infrastructure project in Central London since the opening of the Underground over 150 years ago. It is Europe’s largest infrastructure project, costing £15 billion. Once opened it will comprise a new 100km east to west underground line connecting all of London’s main employment hubs from Heathrow and Reading in the west; the West End, Farringdon, the City and Canary Wharf in central; through to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east. When complete, Farringdon will become the UK’s busiest station and its planned that over 140 trains per hour will flow through the interchange. It will be the only station that provides a 3-way connection between the London Underground as well as the north/south Thameslink and mainline network. It is expected that over 200 million passengers will travel on Crossrail each year. Crossrail will give Central London a direct rail service to Heathrow in approximately 30 minutes and provide City to West End access in less than 10 minutes.
