TfL has released this new map, showing the full extent of Crossrail services that will be running from 2019 — including services serving all Heathrow terminals.

It has also announced that the frequency of trains on the line will be higher than previously expected, and that 70 trains will operate across the line, instead of the 66 that were planned.

Off-peak services between Paddington and Whitechapel will be increased from 16 trains as previously planned, to 20 trains per hour

Stations west of Paddington will benefit too, with services from Reading doubled from two trains per hour to four trains per hour, and services to Maidenhead increased from four trains per hour to six trains per hour.

The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said:

I am delighted that we can today announce that Elizabeth line services will be more frequent than originally planned, making journeys even more convenient for people travelling in and out of London, and helping ease pressure on other parts of our busy transport network. With more regular services connecting central London with key locations like Heathrow Airport, the benefits will be felt directly by millions of commuters, tourists, and businesses every year.

And no, we're still not calling it the Elizabeth line.
