Demolition of Dog Kennel Bridge near Iver to make way for Crossrail services
Network Rail is responsible for the design, development and delivery of the parts of Crossrail that are on the existing network, covering 70km of track and 27 stations from Maidenhead in the west to Abbey Wood and Shenfield in the east.
Step-free access will be provided at the majority of the stations on the route.
Platform extensions will allow longer, higher capacity trains to run and turnback facilities will improve the reliability of passenger services.
When it opens from 2018, Crossrail will provide new transport links with the Tube, Thameslink, National Rail, DLR and London Overground.
