London Assembly committee welcomes Crossrail consultation

The launch of a consultation process on Crossrail 2 has been welcomed by the London Assembly's Transport Committee. But they warned they will be scrutinising the plans carefully.

“Crossrail 2 has the potential to regenerate parts of the capital that are most at need, but it’s vital that plans for this project are robust and provide the best outcome for all Londoners.

“The Assembly welcomes the launch of TfL and Network Rail’s consultation and will be carefully scrutinising the plans of those in charge to make sure that London gets the boost it deserves from this proposed new transport infrastructure.”

– Valerie Shawcross, Chair of the Transport Committee
