About Crossrail
 Crossrail is the new high frequency, convenient and
 accessible railway for London and the South East.

 When the service opens Crossrail trains will travel
 from Maidenhead and Heathrow in the west to
 Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east via new twin
 tunnels under central London. It will link Heathrow
 Airport, the West End, the City of London and
 Canary Wharf.

 Travelling on Crossrail will dramatically reduce
 journey times:
