The Elizabeth Line (Crossrail) is a new rail line which will run from Reading and Heathrow in the west, through 21 km of new twin-bore tunnels and seven new underground stations under central London to Shenfield and Abbey Wood in the east.

Above the station sits Crossrail Place, a four-storey retail development, which was opened in May 2015. It includes more than 9290m² of retail space, and is topped by a 4,160m² roof garden which incorporates a community performance space and restaurant which is semi-covered by a Foster + Partners designed timber lattice roof.
