Major transport project: Crossrail in Newham

The Elizabeth Line is our new cross-London rail service that will connect Reading and Heathrow in the west, to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east via a new tunnel under central London. 

Newham has four stations on the north east branch (to Shenfield) at Stratford, Manor Park, Forest Gate and Maryland and one station on the south eastern branch at Custom House. 

Newham residents along the route can now enjoy faster journey times to central London, as well as more spacious air-conditioned trains and step free access.
