110 years on from the installation of the first roundel sign at St James’s Park, the latest version of Transport for London’s design is making an appearance across London’s newest railway – the Elizabeth line (aka Crossrail).

The first new roundels have been installed at stations including Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon and Custom House.

Transport for London’s famous roundel has been updated for the Elizabeth line with installation now underway as part of the architectural fit-out of the new stations in central London and Docklands.

The manufacture and installation of the Elizabeth line roundels by specialist suppliers from across the UK is another important milestone in the delivery of London’s newest railway.
