Queen Elizabeth’s digital twin: The technology helping Crossrail to know itself


Queen Elizabeth II famously has two birthdays. Crossrail likewise has two lines to its name, one almost complete and one set back in the wake of Covid. Or are there two lines already? That depends whether you’re counting both the original Queen Elizabeth Line and its digital twin.

The Crossrail project from Transport for London (TFL) is one of the UK’s biggest on-going infrastructure projects. Made up of two major railway lines running beneath London from West to East, the £18.7bn Elizabeth line has 73 miles of route and 41 stations.

The long-awaited service is expected to fully open in 2023. But while the Elizabeth line may not quite be there yet in a physical sense, it already has a digital representation or “twin”, fully up and running……..
