Is Crossrail Your Fast Track to a £50k Salary?
The top tube stops for highest average salaried jobs (advertised) have been revealed in a map released by Adzuma this month. And for those living along the upcoming Crossrail route, it’s good news. Is Crossrail Your Fast Track to a £50k Salary?
Two of five stops where salaries topped £50k were found to be in Barbican, just one tube stop from the Crossrail station in Farringdon, and Bank, just one tube stop from the Crossrail station in Liverpool Street, with the advertised salaries near zone 1 tube stations overall averaging more than £45k.
Crossrail, when it arrives in 2019, will shave valuable travelling time off daily commutes from numerous areas in the South East into prime central London. For someone in Slough, this can mean a commute of little more than 30 minutes direct to their £50k job in the centre of the Capital – potentially faster than that of someone living in the outer zones of London.
For those looking to access higher salaried jobs in the Capital but wishing to keep a tight hold of their purse strings by living further afield in affordable, good quality accommodation, this will be a godsend.
For landlords with properties along the Crossrail route, this will be key information for advertising their rental accommodation and making efforts to reach reliable and financially secure tenants who might not yet have managed or chosen to get onto the property ladder.

Farringdon: £52,721 (Barbican – one stop on the Circle, Metropolitan or Hammersmith and City lines)
