Progress Update Film

Chief Executive Mark Wild gives an update on our plan to complete the Elizabeth line.

At the end of April, Crossrail Ltd outlined a new plan by the new leadership team to complete the outstanding works and safely bring the Elizabeth line into passenger service at the earliest possible date.

Work to complete the Elizabeth line continues to make good progress against our new plan. Fit-out is nearing completion at many stations and testing of the train and signalling system is underway but there is still a huge amount to do before the central section can open.

By the end of this year, final fit-out and testing and commissioning are due to be completed at many stations and Dynamic Testing will be in its final stages. The Trial Running phase will commence in the first quarter of 2020.
