Crossrail chief confirms “main dynamic testing phase has commenced”


Today Crossrail started their main dynamic testing phase which will be ongoing for the next six months. The testing process involves trains operating on the Elizabeth Line that will see new signalling systems and the trains being rigorously tested.

Crossrail chief executive Mark Wild said, “The main dynamic testing phase has commenced and is an important step forward for the Crossrail project.

“Over the next six months we will be testing all the railway’s systems to ensure they are safe and reliable and to identify any faults or software bugs in the very complex systems that are needed to operate the railway. Everyone involved in the project is fully focused on ensuring the Elizabeth Line is completed as quickly as possible and brought into service for passengers.”​
