Construction of the Crossrail station at Canary Wharf was completed ahead of schedule and on budget.
The station has been built in the North Dock of West India Quay with four of the six station levels, forming a new retail destination. The upper 3 floors of the 115,000 sq ft retail provision opened in May 2015 and offers a mix of leisure operators including Everyman Cinema, Sports Bar & Grill and Poncho 8. The roof of the development includes a pavilion restaurant and a landscaped roof garden covered by an elegant, semi open-air lattice roof. The retail, leisure space and roof above the station are owned on a long lease by Canary Wharf Group.
The Elizabeth line service will offer 12 trains per hour in each direction during peak hours and deliver up to 32,000 passengers to Canary Wharf in the 3 hour morning peak. Journey times will be cut to many destinations across London including Canary Wharf to Liverpool Street in 7 minutes, Farringdon in 9 minutes and Heathrow (T1, T2 & T3) in 39 minutes. The Crossrail network will bring an additional 1.5 million people within a one and a half hour commute of the central business districts of London.
