GOVERNMENT CONFIRMS STEP-FREE ACCESS FUNDING FOR CROSSRAIL
Tuesday 18th November 2014

All of the stations on the Crossrail project will now be ‘step free’ thanks to £14 million of investment announced by Transport Minister Baroness Kramer today, Tuesday 18 November

The government’s investment at Langley, Taplow and Iver stations will make it easier for passengers to access Crossrail trains when they start running from these stations in 2019.

Baroness Kramer said: “I am delighted to confirm the funding of these important accessibility improvements. This is another example of our commitment to build a world-class rail network that is open to all. It is only right that everyone should be able to enjoy the huge benefits that Crossrail will bring.

“Crossrail will transform travel across London and the South East, and is already creating jobs and opportunities across the country. Continuing to invest in projects like these will help us build a stronger economy and a fairer society.”

I quite like many of these stations. They give you this small town vibe that you often get in London in certain areas and quarters.

Are there further plans for TfL to annex other rail routes in London, enlarging the "Overground" network?

Except of Liverpool Street to Enfield Town, Cheshunt and Chingford services and Romford-Upminster line, no more "Overground" lines are planned

How are the new Canal Tunnels going to work? Does this mean the permanent closure of Hotel Curve and York Road? What will happen to those tunnels?

I'm concerned that the new Canal Tunnels seem to require crossing the ECML at grade.

Also, it seems to me that if they were to move the signal tower at the throat, they could squeeze in an extra terminating track at London Bridge. Or am I just guessing in the dark?

They still exist other than as empty tunnels? I'm pretty sure they were permanently closed in the 70s.

Why? It's taking all the services on the slows (which then have a flying junction with the fasts), or near enough as to make no difference.

Far worse is the flat junction at Blackfriars, not that you can do much about that.
