The new station will open in the autumn

Work to complete the new Abbey Wood station is on course as platform structures and tracks for the Elizabeth Line have been installed.

The new station is expected to open to Southeastern services in the autumn, with the Elizabeth Line services expected to be up and running from December 2018.

Take a look through our gallery of pictures to see inside the new-look station, which is expected to halve journey times to central London.

A larger ticket hall and concourse leading directly onto a forecourt will connect the new station to the Harrow Manorway Flyover.

There will also be six lifts installed to provide step free access and better security and customer information systems.

“The new station will provide an improved experience for the thousands of people who use the station every day,” explained Crossrail surface director Matthew White.
