TfL offer some the chance to visit Canary Wharf Crossrail station

Now you may be absolutely sick of waiting for the Elizabeth Line to finally commence operations, and you’d have my sympathy if so, but if it’s any compensation you can take a visit to Canary Wharf station in advance of opening.

Transport for London are still claiming the service will open in the first half of 2022, which doesn’t give them much time.

Despite a number of large scale passenger trials and tests earlier this year, there is still no confirmed opening date.

Crossrail-related bus changes are due to begin in mid May, and signs are gradually appearing but as yet no exact date for the public to ride.

This Easter weekend is seeing a new key software update named ELR 200.

Train reliability is still not up to scratch which software updates hope to resolve.

Are we getting to the point where they will have to start services even if reliability is below aspirations given the extremely drawn out process?

As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

Another option is via my Patreon account by clicking here

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.

    @MJ: the site is now demanding a password. I will look elsewhere, but this may have been a limited window of opportunity that is now closed.
