Another TfL paper - this time setting out progress for Crossrail and the preparations for running into Heathrow from next May and the wider preparation for start of Central London services in 14 months time.
You will note that several issues are now on critical paths with little flexibility to cope with delays. These centre largely around getting signalling systems tested and integrated and also obtaining the large number of sign offs for the safe introduction of a lot of new railway assets.
Oyster and Contactless ticketing to Heathrow via HEX and Crossrail should be introduced next May according to the paper.
