Crossrail 2 update
Government reiterates commitment to Crossrail 2
As part of the Autumn Budget, the Government reiterated its commitment to Crossrail 2 with the announcement of an independent funding and finance review, due to take place this year. Affordability remains the project’s most pressing issue, so it is important to identify ways to deliver the scheme for less and get value for taxpayers’ money.
The Crossrail 2 team have recently assured us they remain committed to undertaking a full public consultation on updated proposals once the funding review is complete. In the meantime they will continue to engage with local communities and businesses to further strengthen the close partnerships they have already established.
They will keep us informed of further progress on the scheme and in turn we will update you.
