Elizabeth line opens and welcomes excited passengers

Elizabeth line opens and welcomes excited passengers

After much anticipation, the Elizabeth line is now operational - more than three years late.

The £18.8bn railway - known as the Elizabeth line - links Reading and Essex via central London.

Transport for London said 130,000 journeys had been made on the line by midday on Tuesday.

Passengers have been using the Abbey Wood to Paddington section of the line, with journey times between the two cut by almost half.
