Diamond Geezer has tested journey times through central London on the
existing network, and compared them to what Crossrail will offer in
Crossrail's benefit is greater capacity - when did people start
adding "also faster" to that?
well obviously it's going to be faster if you measure a direct journey
on CR with one requiring a change on the the underground.
Hold on. Isn't the blog referred to saying that faster times are not
actually the case.
No, that's not what Mr Geezer found. As I said, he found that the benefits
were very variable.
As Tim says, adding the platform-surface times are going to even it out
a lot. I wonder if trips like Kings Cross to Paddington will be any
quicker once you've factored in the change at Farringdon, or will people
be expected to continue grinding their way along via Edgware Rd?

Tellingly, even TfL frequently suggest taking an alternative,
At least, finally, Crossrail will resolve the oddity of how poorly
