Elizabeth line train makes successful maiden voyage
Crossrail Limited and Transport for London (TfL) have hailed a major milestone for Europe’s largest infrastructure project as the first new Elizabeth line train was tested in the brand new tunnels through London.
The new train – built by Bombardier engineers in Derby – was the first to be driven from Abbey Wood. It entered the new tunnels at Plumstead Portal and travelled under the Thames heading for Connaught Tunnel before returning to Abbey Wood station.
The Elizabeth line is set to transform transport in London with quicker, easier and more accessible journeys when it launches in December.
