Transport for London have today announced that the Elizabeth Line will open on 24 May.
After years of delay and many months of testing the final approval has been given.
The line will prove revolutionary for London enhancing journeys for millions, and is already seeing huge changes in south east London as numerous housing developments rise near stations.
Related TfL bus changes in south east London are set to commence 10 days before on 14 May, as covered on this site.
When running Abbey Wood to Canary Wharf will take 11 minutes and Liverpool Street 18 minutes.
Services will operate every five minutes though initially start later at 6:30am and finish earlier at 11:30pm. Sunday will see no service to allow further work to be completed. Bond Street will not open with the rest of the line.
So then, after decades of talk and then many years of building work it’s finally happening. Personally it’ll save me many, many hours each year. The amount of slow, overcrowded tube and train rides I’ve taken that can now be consigned to history. Yes!
More time for family, more time to rest, more time to work and even an incentive to get out and do more. The wonders of an efficient, fast public transport network
