World class design is at the heart of Crossrail. As the project approaches 75 per cent complete, our before and after image gallery below gives a glimpse behind the hoardings to see how the new stations are taking shape.

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.
The new designs are on display in a new free exhibition at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) alongside architectural components destined for the stations. The ‘Platform for Design’ exhibition will give an insight into the design of the new railway, its stations and public spaces.
