Artist impressions of what the eight new Crossrail stations for London have recently been released with much fanfare by Mayor of London Boris Johnson and Transport Minister Theresa Villiers.
The stations at Paddington, Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon, Liverpool Street, Whitechapel, Canary Wharf and Custom House will form part of the planned route stretching from Shenfield to the east of the Capital through to Maidenhead in Berkshire in the west.
The station at Canary Wharf is planned to be one of the biggest on the network so it will be able to handle the many thousands of workers who commute into the area every day. Designers hope to re-create the spacious environment seen at the nearby Jubilee line station into the design – avoiding the sometimes cramped and claustrophobic conditions experienced elsewhere on older parts of the Tube network.
Canary Wharf Crossrail Station
The new £500 million station will be built on the North Dock of West India Quay and will be within walking distance of One Canada Square, the Canary Wharf Shopping Mall and the current DLR and Jubilee line stations.
The entire £16 billion project isn’t due for completion until 2017 but will bring a major boost to the South East economy once finished.
Along with our range of serviced offices in Canary Wharf in the iconic One Canada Square building, we also have a number of office suites available to rent in Slough – another destination further to the west on the Crossrail route.
