Early Breakfast with James Stewart 4am - 6:30am
Crossrail today unveiled striking new designs for Tottenham Court Road Crossrail station, one of the biggest stations on the Crossrail route.
The updated designs not only provide Londoners with a first glimpse of the new station but also an indication of the scale of the station's eventual size. The new Crossrail station will be integrated with the Tube station to form a combined station that will stretch from Soho to Centre Point.
Crossrail will cut journey times from the West End to many destinations. Paddington will be just 5 minutes away, Ealing Broadway 15 minutes, Heathrow 30 minutes, Canary Wharf 12 minutes and Ilford 23 minutes. The Crossrail service at Tottenham Court Road will be 24 trains per hour in each direction during the peak.
