London’s first railway station, the King of the Railway, will open for passengers in 2019.
The King of Railway will be operated by British rail operator Trainline.
It will have five stations, including a central station and a new station to cater for new routes.
The new station will be named Queen Elizabeth Junction, which will be a “high-profile addition to the network and a place to welcome passengers to the Capital”, according to a statement from Trainline, which is owned by British passenger carrier Virgin Trains.
The railway will be run by a subsidiary of British rail company Arriva and it will run trains to and from London.
British rail network operator Arriva is also planning to open the King’s Cross station in 2019, with more than 10,000 trains daily between the capital and other cities.
The rail network has been beset by a number of problems, including over-capacity and poor passenger safety, in recent years.
A total of 574 people died and more than 2,000 were injured in passenger-related accidents during the last financial year, according to figures released by the National Rail Safety Board.
The figures show that there were 2,716 deaths and 6,851 injuries on British rail services in the first eight months of 2019, compared to 1,891 deaths and 3,902 injuries during the same period in 2018.
