Maidenhead and Twyford to link directly to the City of London
The Elizabeth line opened on Tuesday 24 May 2022 with TfL Rail services from Maidenhead, Twyford and Heathrow to Paddington mainline.
The railway has continued to receive an incredible reception, with over ten million passengers using the railway in its first two months of operation, travelling through the heart of London.
The Elizabeth line has already transformed travel across London and the South East through dramatically improving transport links, cutting journey times, providing additional capacity, and transforming accessibility with spacious new stations and walk-through trains.
On 6 November 2022, the next phase of opening the Elizabeth line will integrate services from Maidenhead and Twyford in the west into the new central tunnels and stations bringing additional benefits to those travelling to and from the east and west.
This connection enables services from Maidenhead, Twyford and Heathrow through Paddington to Abbey Wood. The service in the central stations between Paddington and Whitechapel will be 22 trains per hour during the peak and 16 trains per hour off-peak. The integrated service means there will be a seven-day service across the entire Elizabeth line.
Bond Street Station will also open on 6th November.
Local passengers will have direct links to Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Canary Wharf, Custom House, Farringdon and Liverpool Street and beyond.
