The new Crossrail Custom House station, located in east London, is the only above ground station within Crossrail’s central section.
Crossrail expects to announce the winning bidder towards the end of the year for construction to start in early 2013.
The new station will not only assist with the continued regeneration of the Royal Docks but also improve links between central London and the ExCeL Exhibition Centre.
When Crossrail opens, passengers will be able to reach Canary Wharf in 4 minutes, Bond Street in 17 minutes and Heathrow Airport in less than 45 minutes.
The new Crossrail station will be built on the site of the former North London Line station which closed to passengers in December 2006.
The new station will include a new ticket hall, interchange with Docklands Light Railway and step-free access between the street and Crossrail platforms.
