Platform for Design: Abbey Wood station
The Crossrail project will help to transform Abbey Wood. The new railway will halve journey times to many central London destinations and is already attracting new businesses and investment to the local area.
The new station will open for Southeastern passengers in October 2017. From December 2018, Elizabeth line trains will allow passengers to travel right through central London to Paddington.
From December 2019, when the full route opens, an Elizabeth line service every five minutes will allow passengers to catch one train right through central London to Paddington, Heathrow or Reading in the west.
