One of the two eastern sections runs underground from Whitechapel to Stratford, then on the surface on the existing main line.The service will replace the "Shenfield metro", with key stops at Ilford, Romford (for interchange with London Overground services to Upminster), Gidea Park (where some peak hour trains will start or terminate), and Shenfield.Crossrail's central core section will use new east–west twin tunnels under central London, splitting into two branches at either end.The tunnelled sections will be approximately 22 kilometres (14 mi) in length.It is expected to relieve pressure on existing east-west London Underground lines such as the Central and District lines, as well as the Jubilee line extension and the Heathrow branch of the Piccadilly line.Crossrail will be operated by MTR Corporation (Crossrail) Ltd as a London Rail concession of Transport for London, The concept of large-diameter tunnels crossing central London to connect Paddington in the west and Liverpool Street in the east was first proposed by railwayman George Dow in The Star newspaper in June 1941.It was also suggested that the alignment of the tunnels should be safeguarded while a final decision was taken.The Central London Rail Study of 1989 proposed tunnels linking the existing rail network as the "East–West Crossrail", "City Crossrail", and "North–South Crossrail" schemes.
Both the Labour and Conservative parties made commitments in their manifestos for the 2010 election to deliver the railway, and the coalition government formed after the election also committed to the project.
The Shenfield branch will be connected to Paddington in May 2019 and the branches west of Paddington will be connected to the central core in December 2019, completing the new east–west route across London and providing a new high-frequency commuter and suburban passenger service.
The project was approved in 2007 and construction began in 2009 on the central section and connections to existing lines that will become part of the route.
One branch runs to Heathrow Central (for Terminals 2 and 3), Heathrow Terminal 4 and Heathrow Terminal 5, The main western section runs on the surface from Reading to Acton Main Line.
Upgrades are being made to stations at Maidenhead, Taplow, Burnham, Slough, Langley, Iver, West Drayton, Hayes & Harlington, Southall, Hanwell, West Ealing, Ealing Broadway and Acton Main Line.
