Those people at Crossrail keep teasing us with more and more photos of what the stations will look like when they finally open late next year. This latest batch shows architectural components including escalators, light fittings and ceilings being added to stations on the line.
Construction of the stations and tunnels is now more than 85% complete after twin-bore 21km tunnels were drilled under the city.
Julian Robinson, Crossrail Head of Architecture, said: "Crossrail is working with the best architects and engineers in the world to create a railway that builds upon the unrivalled heritage of London and its iconic transport network."
Howard Smith, TfL's Operations Director for the Elizabeth line, said: "It won’t be long before customers get to experience these spacious, state-of-the-art, accessible stations for themselves. They really will transform the journeys for millions of Londoners, sure to surprise and delight those travelling through them."
Highlights include underground glazing decal based on the street map of Soho at Tottenham Court Road (which, if we're being honest, puts us in mind of Tetris), and columns inspired by the adjacent Grade II listed railway station at Paddington.
Tottenham Court Road also has acoustic ceiling drums, apparently inspired by the West End.
The new trains that will run on the line were launched in June 2017, and are now in limited public service on the TfL Rail line between Liverpool Street and Shenfield.
Crossrail services through central London from Reading and Heathrow to Shenfield and Abbey Wood are due to begin in December 2018.
