Crossrail have received final certification to begin running services on 24 May.
The Office of Road and Rail have today announced certification of all stations with the exception of Bond Street which is set to open later this year.
Bond Street has been certified to be used for evacuation until opening.
Services will begin running in less than two weeks between Abbey Wood and Paddington with service frequencies of trains every five minutes.
There will be no early morning, late night or Sunday services initially on the Elizabeth Line as work continues on various remaining issues such as software updates and reliability.
Upon opening, Abbey Wood will be around 10 minutes from Canary Wharf and 18 from Liverpool Street.
The line has spurred various housing developments around stations including around 1,000 homes within walking distance of Abbey Wood.
They are either set to complete in the near term or shortly commence. That includes 525 in south Thamesmead, over 200 at towers a minutes walk from the station and nearly 300 set to start at Eynsham Drive where an on-site car wash has just closed.
There are also thousands of homes underway or set to start in Woolwich including four towers currently under construction beside the Thames.
Just last week plans were submitted for over 250 homes in Woolwich – covered here – and this week plans were uploaded on timescales regarding the demolition of college buildings in Plumstead within walking distance of Woolwich station.
That project is set to kick off next month and will see 294 homes alongside new college facilities.
