One of the most significant infrastructure projects ever undertaken in the UK, London’s Crossrail is a high-frequency, high-capacity service enabling faster travel across the capital. Forming part of Crossrail’s plan to open up 10 new stations, the remodeling of Farringdon station endeavours to prevent overcrowding and generate economic growth in the area. The finished railway will be named the Elizabeth line when it opens in 2018.
Date of Completion: 2018
