World class design is at the heart of Crossrail. These images, captured in summer 2016, give a glimpse behind the hoardings to see how the new stations are taking shape.
Drag the divider in each image left or right to see the before and after view.
The new stations, all of which will be step-free from train to street, will open in 2018. They will be fully integrated with TfL’s existing transport network, transforming travel across London and offering passengers seamless journeys.
