Crossrail is the largest transport scheme seen in London and the South East for 50 years, as well as being the biggest construction project in Europe.

Designed to join the Great Western and Great Eastern railway networks, the project comprises a 118km rail link running from Maidenhead and Heathrow in the west out to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east.
