Launch of Crossrail trains pushed back by TfL [RTM]

Date: 01/06/2017

The introduction of the new Crossrail trains to run on Elizabeth Line services has been pushed back to this month, TfL has today confirmed.
Trains were supposed to be rolled out on services between Liverpool Street and Shenfield by the end of May. But now TfL has said that commuters will have to wait until later in June to see the new trains enter passenger service.
Howard Smith, TfLs operations director for the Elizabeth Line, said: The train is undergoing thorough testing, assurance and approvals before it enters passenger service shortly.
Good progress is being made and we anticipate testing being completed within the next few weeks. We continue to work closely with Bombardier, Network Rail and MTR Crossrail.
