London First responds to Comprehensive Spending Review

Commenting today on the Chancellor’s spending review, Baroness Jo Valentine, Chief Executive of London First, said:

“Crossrail 2 is essential to keep London moving as its population increases by another 1.5 million people over the next 20 years and we welcome the Chancellor’s support for the project.  But we cannot afford the decades of indecision that so delayed Crossrail 1.  Construction must start as soon as Crossrail 1 is finished in 2018 which means detailed planning must start now.”
