Constructing Paddington Crossrail station beneath Eastbourne Terrace

Constructing Paddington Crossrail station beneath Eastbourne Terrace

The Crossrail Paddington Station is being built directly below Departures Road and Eastbourne Terrace and will offer a superior travelling experience with smoother interchanges and improved accessibility, easing congestion and providing space for future growth in passenger numbers.

The station will take the form of an underground box measuring 260m long, 25m wide and 23m deep, and is located directly under Departures Road and Eastbourne Terrace.

Construction of the station started in October 2011.  Click on the details below to find out about current construction works at Paddington.
