Take a look at the reduced journey times predicted for London's brand new Elizabeth line. Just how much will this high-speed railway transform your daily commute?
From Paddington to Canary Wharf, for example, it will take just 17 minutes, compared to the current half-hour journey. And from East London's Whitechapel it will take a mere 10 minutes to reach the West End's Bond Street; that's a quarter of an hour's extra shopping right there.
Dexters is fascinated to know how the Elizabeth line will impact on buying and renting in central London. Imagine how much more of it will be open to you, with fast trains carrying 1500 passengers from home to work, shopping, dinner and back again.
With the line due for completion by 2019, stations including Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road and Farringdon will continue to undergo major work as they prepare to become London's busiest stations.
So whether you're a potential buyer or tenant, why not open a conversation with Dexters about properties in these areas now? You too can be ready to move at high-speed when the time comes.
The first Elizabeth line services on London’s long-awaited £14.8 billion Crossrail project will run for the first time next month. Eight years after building work began on the mammoth cross-London project, the first stage of the railway will launch towards the end of May. The stretch of the line between Liverpool Street heading east to Shenfield will be the only part of the line to run, until the next stage launches in May 2018. Around 11 new Elizabeth line trains will be gradually rolled out across that section of line from now until September. Transport for London has not yet announced the exact date of the first service next month as more tests and practice runs are carried out by as drivers and Crossrail staff.
