Crossrail Limited has released a series of artist’ impressions depicting what the fancy Elizabeth Line stations will look like once London’s new route opens in December 2018.
Every station on the line will be free of steps from the train to the street and, according to the firm, has been given a “distinct character” to reflect the heritage of the surrounding areas. That means Canary Wharf station is to be decorated with money and wankstains, Bond Street will… also be plastered with the stuff and, crikey, Liverpool Street too. Pretty easy.
I kid -- in a way -- of course. The new station at Paddington is apparently influenced by Isambard Kingdom Brunel's existing terminus building, the one at Farringdon will represent a nod to the area’s old jewellery trade, and Tottenham Court Road station will feature black glass and stainless steel bits to reflect the nightlife in the area.
Now, can you guess the station from the picture?
The answers from top to bottom (including the header image):
- Bond Street
- Farringdon (the easy one)
- Tottenham Court Road
