Work on the Elizabeth Line (Crossrail 1) at Pudding Lane, Stratford, has been completed. It involved track work allowing trains to enter and exit new tunnels from the existing railway.
Upgraded overhead lines, signals and track have been completed at Gidea Park to enable the 200m-long Elizabeth Line trains to use sidings.
There are talks being held to extend the line to Bexley and north Kent. There is still no news of discussions on getting a station to serve London City Airport.
