Crossrail Given Green Light

Date Published 17 October 2007

The goverment has given the go-ahead for the £10bn Crossrail project.

Crossrail will improve train services to and from Abbey Wood Station by providing journey time savings and a greater variety of journey opportunities.

With Crossrail operational,the total number of seats available on trains to central London from Abbey Wood would almost double as a result of longer,more frequent trains.

During peak periods,Crossrail could run up to 12 additional train services per hour.

Estimated journey times are:
Abbey Wood - From / to Liverpool Street 10 minutes
Abbey Wood - From / to Tottenham Ct Rd 16 Minutes
Abbey Wood - From / to Paddington 22 minutes
Abbey wood - From / to Heathrow 54 minutes

Crossrail will open up the Thames Gateway region and in turn offers excellent future investment opportunities with good long term capital growth on property prices.
