Crossrail is a new railway proposal for London and the South-East, linking Maidenhead and Heathrow in the west to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east via new twin tunnels under central London.
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 will come into service in 2017, bringing major reductions in congestion and journey times for London and the South East. Preliminary works has commenced in 2009 while main construction starts in 2010.
Crossrail includes 37 stations and 2 of these are located in South Bucks, namely Iver and Taplow stations (the regional route map can be downloaded below). The work timetable for South Bucks can be found in the Context Report downloadable below.
