Our newsletter covered the construction of the new steel and glass station with a large canopy. The station will accomodate the new trains which will be 200m in length holding 1500 commuters.
Essentially new routes will be open up from the station into Central London. At the moment only Paddington is served centrally by the station and commuters have to transfer on.
This will all change with the introduction of Crossrail in 2019.
Below is the journey times expected from this station.
Destination Current Journey (mins) New Journey (mins)
