Delivery of the Elizabeth line is now in its complex final stages, with a plan to complete the railway focused on the remaining construction and systems integration, followed by intensive operational testing. Crossrail is working to complete the remaining infrastructure so it can fully test the railway and successfully transition the project as an operational railway to Transport for London.

The outgoing Crossrail Board in August forecast that the opening of the central section will be in the first half of 2022.
