Taking A Train Between Abbey Wood And Ilford Stations On The Lizzie Line

The Elizabeth Line will open up a large number of new routes for Londoners, those who visit and those who live close to the tentacles of the new line.

One of these routes is between South East London and East London or South Essex.

You could take two trains in and out of central London, with the Underground in between, but the easiest way is to drive.

But then the Dartford Crossing hasn’t the needed capacity.

But the Elizabeth Line, which opened today, gives you an alternative with a simple cross-platform change at Whitechapel or Liverpool Street stations.

I took a trip today between Abbey Wood and Ilford stations, changing at Whitechapel to assess the feasibility of a route like this as a daily commute, taking these pictures along the route,


Between Abbey Wood And Ilford stations took 39 minutes.

Google says a car will take 45 minutes.
