Crossrail

The Crossrail Bill was introduced to the House of Commons in February 2005 and the Royal Assent was given to the Crossrail Act in July 2008, giving Crossrail Ltd the authority to build the railway.

Crossrail involves a new cross London service between Reading in the West and Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the East. It will enable direct interchanges with most of the underground services provided by Transport for London. The new service will start in 2019 and will result in an improved service 7 days a week of up to 4 trains an hour.

Crossrail trains will stop at Iver and Taplow stations within South Bucks. Canary Wharf will be only 51 minutes from Taplow and Tottenham Court Road will be 27 minutes away from Iver. Both stations will be improved in terms of signage and waiting facilities with lift access to provide for the mobility impaired. The whole of the Great Western line to Reading and beyond will be electrified.
