Taplow station

A number of improvements are being delivered at Taplow station as part of the Crossrail programme, including:

  • Cutting back the canopy on platform 3 by approximately 60cm and then reinstating the timber valance to provide clearance for new overhead electric lines
  • Providing a solid barrier to the inside of the walls of the footbridge to prevent access to the overhead electric lines – this will be made of glass to minimise the impact on the appearance of the bridge
  • Reinforcing the footbridge with steel struts and bracing.

Transport for London will also install lifts at the station before the first Elizabeth line services begin in 2019.

Work to install a new station information system, security systems and CCTV has already been delivered. In addition, the canopy on platform 3 has been cut back and the timber valance reinstated to provide clearance for new overhead electric wires.

As well as the station works, overhead electric wires will be installed on the line in preparation for new, electric trains and extensive track and signalling work will improve reliability and increase capacity.

ELIZABETH LINE SERVICES FROM TAPLOW

From December 2019, up to four Elizabeth line trains an hour in each direction will serve Taplow station, allowing passengers to travel right through central London without having to change trains.
