On the Essex-London Border, Crossrail Is Driving Up Property Demand
Chadwell Heath has long been one of the most popular commuter towns, but Crossrail is making the postcode even more lucrative.
It’s been in the making since 2009, but there’s an end in sight to London’s biggest ever transport project. That’s right – Crossrail is finally nearing completion. By next year trains will be running, and the route, recently named the Elizabeth Line, will make it so much easier for Londoners and those in the surrounding areas to travel into and across the capital. Needless to say, commuter towns in Essex will massively benefit from Crossrail’s completion. As there will be a Crossrail station only a few minutes away in Romford, Chadwell Heath is set be a major part of this upcoing travel revolution.
Crossrail is a rail project that the capital simply hasn’t ever seen the likes of before. Spanning from Berkshire to Essex, it will also pass through key central travel hubs such as Charing Cross, Liverpool Street, Paddington and Canary Wharf. It will also make it a lot easier to reach Heathrow Airport. Where it may have been complicated trying to get from one side of the capital to the other before, with numerous train changes, Crossrail will completely change that. London will be connected in a way that it wasn’t before, and that’s what is leading to something called the ‘Crossrail effect’. For those who aren’t in the know, this is a marked increase in demand for properties near a Crossrail station, and Chadwell Heath is one of the areas experiencing that.
