Next phase of Elizabeth line confirmed to open this November

The next stage of the Elizabeth line has been confirmed by Transport for London today, with trains running directly from Reading and Heathrow to Abbey Wood and from Shenfield to Paddington set to begin this November. 

 

The new Bond Street Elizabeth line station is also set to open by November, giving another boost to London’s recovery from the pandemic.  

 

From Sunday 6 November, the lines from Reading, Heathrow, and Shenfield will connect with the central tunnels of the Elizabeth line – opening up new direct journeys across the capital. This means that customers travelling from Reading and Heathrow will be able to travel east all the way to Abbey Wood without changing at Paddington. Customers travelling from Shenfield will be able to travel west all the way to Paddington without changing at Liverpool Street. Journeys to onward destinations, including to Heathrow Airport or towards Reading, can be made by changing trains on the same platform at any of the central London stations.
