Delivery of the Elizabeth line comes under the remit of the Mayor of London and Transport for London (TfL).

TfL has stated that Elizabeth line remains on schedule to open the central section tunnel between Abbey Wood and Paddington in the first half of 2022. Specific opening dates will only be communicated once the railway is safe and reliable to open to passengers.
