TfL has marked 12 months to go until the Elizabeth Line opens by revealing the Tube Map with the Elizabeth Line on.
The construction of the Elizabeth line has now entered its final stages and will open to the public in phases from December next year, when ten new state-of-the-art stations will open.
From December 2018, the line will initially operate as three services:
- Paddington (Elizabeth line station) to Abbey Wood via central London
- Paddington (mainline station) to Heathrow (Terminals 2 & 3 and 4)
- Liverpool Street (mainline station) to Shenfield
Fifteen trains per hour will run through the new tunnels, increasing to 24 trains per hour through the central section by May 2019.
From December 2019, customers from Reading and Heathrow will be able to travel all the way through central London to the West End and the City and beyond without needing to change trains.
