Crossrail has released pictures of what the stations along the forthcoming Elizabeth line will look like, when it opens in 2018.

The images of the new stations provide a glimpse of what we can expect to see at platform level, as well as the design of the ticket halls for stations such as Paddington, Bond Street and Tottenham Court Road.

Crossrail says each of the new stations will have its own, distinct character, conceived by different architects, and will "reflect the environment and heritage of the local area".

For example, the new Elizabeth line station at Paddington "will echo the design legacy of Brunel’s existing terminus building", while the new Farringdon station "will take inspiration from the historic local trades of blacksmiths and goldsmiths, as well as the distinctive architecture of the Barbican".
