About Crossrail

Crossrail Limited, established in 2001, is the company that has been set up to build the new railway that will become known as the Elizabeth line when it opens through central London.

It was a 50/50 joint venture company between Transport for London (TfL) and the Department for Transport (DfT) until 5 December 2008 when it became a fully owned subsidiary of TfL. Once the railway is complete it will be run by TfL as the Elizabeth Line, part of London’s integrated transport network
