Like Maidenhead, Reading is set to benefit hugely from The Crossrail project. On completion, two Elizabeth line trains an hour will allow passengers to travel right through central London without having to change trains. Like Maidenhead, journey times will be cut significantly: Reading to Canary Wharf – 67 minutes; Reading to Bond Street – 53 minutes; and Reading to Liverpool Street, just 61 minutes.
