Following the announcement that seven government departments have provisionally agreed to reduce their budgets by up to 10%, underground and business leaders are urging the Chancellor not cut funding for major tube projects.
They say schemes like the planned £250 million makeover of Holborn station are vital.
Holborn serves the 'midtown' business district but is closed several times during rush hour because it can't cope with its 100,000 passengers a day.

A spokesman for Crossrail said today:
“Crossrail regards the safety of all those working on the project as paramount and requires all workers to adhere to strict safety requirements including an obligation to raise any concerns.
We fully investigated Unite’s specific claims and found no evidence to support them. Crossrail has written to Unite on several occasions to update them on industry and health safety issues but has yet to receive a response.”
Labour's London Assembly spokewoman Val Shawcross says a closer look needs to be taken at the goings on at Crossrail after a construction worker was hospitalised with serious burns following an explosion
