Crossrail: Railway line under development in England
Crossrail is a 73-mile (117-kilometre) new railway line under development in England. Crossing London from west to east, at each end of its central core the line will divide into two branches: in the west to Reading or stations at Heathrow Airport, and in the east to Abbey Wood or Shenfield. In May 2015, a section of one of the eastern branches, between Liverpool Street and Shenfield, was transferred to TfL Rail; this precursor service also took control of Heathrow Connect in May 2018 and the Paddington to Reading line in December 2019.
