About the event
London’s Elizabeth Line opened to passengers on May 24th 2022 to great acclaim and with much excitement. The construction was one of Europe's largest infrastructure projects of recent times. The Central Operating Section (Core section) consists of 42km and station boxes fitted with track, 25kV overhead electrification, related cabling and all necessary railway systems. The project included ten new or remodelled stations that have been dug to a depth of up to nine storeys below ground level, connecting with existing London Underground and Network Rail operations. Ultimately 24 trains per hour will operate across the route, significantly reducing the time to commute from the east and west into and across London. This webinar will share some of the success stories of the project, and will also explore some of the challenges faced, suggesting how future railway projects of similar complexity could avoid some of the difficulties encountered.
