Crossrail is the most significant infrastructure project in London in nearly two decades, and is set to increase London’s rail transport capacity by 10% when it opens in 2018. This will be the single largest uplift in capacity since World War II. Passenger numbers are expected to be in the region of 200 million a year. The dramatically faster travel times that will be possible once Crossrail opens will make central London more accessible to a greater number of workers, but will also make Crossrail’s central ‘hubs’ more attractive for residents given the increased ease with which they will be able to travel across the city.
