Crossrail 2 safeguarding "a great step forward for a vitally important project" - Val Shawcross AM

Crossrail

Responding to the TfL announcement that the Crossrail 2 route has been safeguarded by the Secretary of State for Transport, Labour’s London Assembly Transport Spokesperson Val Shawcross AM said:

“This is a great step forward for the vitally important Crossrail 2 project. With London growing at a record pace and much of our transport infrastructure already at capacity it’s a no brainer that we need transport projects like Crossrail 2.

“By safeguarding the Crossrail 2 route the Secretary of State has sent a clear message of intent which will be widely welcomed, what we need now is a comprehensive funding commitment to make Crossrail 2 a reality.

“Keeping London moving isn’t just about those who live in the capital, it’s about ensuring London’s continued global competitiveness and economic dynamism – providing infrastructure that helps the whole of the UK prosper.”
