The Mayor

I'm delighted to say that the first Elizabeth line train came into service on 22 June. The Crossrail programme is on time and on budget - it is now 85 per cent complete.

The new tunnels and stations through central London and Docklands are on schedule to open as planned in December 2018 as the Elizabeth line.
