The Department for Transport has regular discussions with Transport for London and Crossrail Limited regarding the Crossrail project.

On 25 April 2019, the Crossrail Limited Board announced that it had completed a new plan to complete the outstanding works and bring the Elizabeth Line into passenger service at the earliest possible date.

As many risks and uncertainties remain in the development and testing of the train and signalling systems, Crossrail Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Transport for London, has identified a six-month delivery window with a midpoint at the end of 2020.
