Class 700 to transform Thameslink travel experience
24 May 2016









UK: Prior to the Class 700 electric multiple-unit being brought into service between Bedford and Brighton over the next few weeks, on May 24 Govia Thameslink Railway presented to stakeholders a 12-car variant of the 115 trainsets that are being built by Siemens.

‘These trains have been designed to carry up to 1 750 people in climate-controlled comfort, which is essential to meet the huge growth in passenger numbers that have soared 40% in the past decade’, said GTR CEO Charles Horton. He also highlighted ‘their wide doors, open interiors and state-of-the-art real-time passenger information systems’, which would help GTR run a high-frequency service on the Thameslink route across London in 2018, offering 80% more seats

Gospel Oak to Barking line closure starts 4 June
23 May 2016

Customers and local residents are being reminded that major upgrade work to the London Overground route between Gospel Oak and Barking will result in a phased closure starting Saturday 4 June 2016, as part of Network Rail's Railway Upgrade Plan. In total an eight month closure of the railway is needed to carry out this vital work.

Network Rail is delivering the project, which is funded by the Department for Transport and Transport for London (TfL). The project will see TfL introduce new four-car electric trains to replace the existing two-car diesel trains from January 2018, helping to meet growing passenger demand

Seeing it in London as well makes me think it'll be (almost) standard in 10 years time.

Why is TfL so hostile to a Crossrail station at LCY?

London City Airport has questioned why Transport for London is rebuffing its proposals to fund and build a Crossrail station at the Docklands hub.

The newly-named Elizabeth Line has stops at Custom House, to the north of Victoria Dock, and at Woolwich and it is carried in tunnels underneath the airport but the airport itself is not on the initial roster of stations.

Chief executive Declan Collier told Construction News : “We have been proposing to the powers-that-be to build a Crossrail station here. We know we can deliver it but the amount of resistance we are getting to this completely self-funded project is mind-boggling.”

TfL denies that it is hostile to the idea.

Howard Smith, operations director for the Elizabeth line, said “We are always open to hearing feedback on the future Elizabeth line service. We have not had a formal feasibility study from London City Airport and we are focused on delivering the current project on time and to budget.”

Mr Collier said the station would generate the £3million a year operational costs and another station would add just under three minutes to overall journey times according to the airport’s calculations.

The airport is currently awaiting the outcome of its planning appeal against the decision to block its £300million expansion plans with the new Mayor, Sadiq Khan, more receptive to the idea than his predecessor.

Crossrail work carried out at 19 outer London locations over bank holiday

Work to adapt railways in outer London, Berkshire and Essex for Crossrail was successfully completed over the spring bank holiday weekend.

Network Rail carried out 40,000 hours of work at 19 locations on 28-30 May, when the number of passengers was reduced because of the bank holiday.

Three-quarters of the £2.3bn programme, which will be called the Elizabeth Line in honour of the Queen, passes through outer London, Berkshire and Essex.

Matthew Steele, Crossrail programme director at Network Rail, said: “Once opened, the Elizabeth line will greatly improve the capacity of the transport network in London and beyond with new trains offering more frequent and more reliable services from Berkshire, Essex and the south east of London. I would like to thank passengers and our lineside neighbours for their patience over the bank holiday whilst we carried out these major works.”

At Shenfield station, nine new booms were laid and twelve foundations dug as part of work to upgrade the electrification equipment.

Station upgrades were carried out between Shenfield and London Liverpool Street, including platform extensions and improvements and progress towards step-free access.

Electrification work was also carried out on the line between Paddington and Reading, where more than 30 new masts were installed, as well as three wire runs and the foundations for 14 masts at Maidenhead.

Station works, including platform extensions and upgrades to accommodate overhead wires, were also carried out at Hayes & Harlington, Southall, West Ealing and Slough.

An old platform was demolished as part of the construction of the new station at Abbey Wood. At Stockley junction, 12 more concrete sections were lifted into place as part of the ramp of the new flyover.

New images of the remodelled stations along the Elizabeth Line were released last month.

Plan for Crossrail link to Wembley and Old Oak Common welcomed by council

Brent Council have welcomed plans for a Crossrail link to Wembley and Old Oak Common which emerged from a Local Plan consultation.

The plans call for a Crossrail link to the West Coast mainline that will provide connections to Wembley and Old Oak Common stations.

There is currently a regeneration scheme ongoing at Old Oak Common and Park Royal, with development of the area set to boost the UK economy by an estimated £7million a year, creating 25,000 new homes and 65,000 new jobs.

Councillor Muhammed Butt, leader of Brent Council, has said that he wants to make sure the people of Brent, especially Willesden and Harlesden, benefit from the project.

He said: "Wembley is one of the London Mayor's Housing Zones, it has been identified as an area of high potential for growth and is home to the national stadium.

"We welcome the reference in the plan to a Crossrail to West Coast Mainline link providing connections to Wembley with the central London economy expanding outwards, we believe a Crossrail link between Old Oak Common and Wembley would make perfect sense, and help accelerate regeneration of the area.

"We look forward to more specific details in the revised Local Plan consultation document, due out later this year.

"Brent Council fully supports the regeneration of Old Oak and Park Royal because of the fantastic transport connections and large amount of new homes and jobs that will be created."

He added: "There's no denying that the scale of transformation is huge, that's why we need to make sure, from the very outset, that the regeneration will help improve the lives of local people in Brent, especially around Harlesden and Willesden.

"Our main priority is always to secure the maximum benefit for our residents. We want to see as much affordable housing provided as possible and also ensure the very best outcome for Willesden Junction and Harlesden High Street."

Crossrail recently started upgrade works across west London , including station upgrades at three west London locations.

Crossrail project makes major station upgrades across west London



Network Rail carried out upgrades to the existing tracks and stations in west London during the Spring Bank Holiday as part of the Crossrail programme .

Three quarters of the new railway's route, which will be known as the Elizabeth Line from December 2018, runs above ground through outer London, Berkshire and Essex.

Network Rial have been working to upgrade the infrastructure so it can cope, including platform extensions and upgrades at Hayes & Harlington, Southall and West Ealing.

As well as these changes, construction on the flyover at Stockley junction continued, which will form the basis of a new ramp.

Network Rail hope that the flyover will allow trains to run more reliably at the busy junction to Heathrow airport and once operational, the Elizabeth line will allow passengers to travel from Reading and Heathrow in the west right through the capital without changing trains.

Matthew Steele, Crossrail Programme Director at Network Rail, said: "Once opened, the Elizabeth line will greatly improve the capacity of the transport network in London and beyond with new trains offering more frequent and more reliable services from Berkshire, Essex and the south east of London.

Crossrail construction has EU fundings? Or the construction is only paid by UK government?
