Commenting on the Crossrail funding package announcement, David Leam, Executive Director, Infrastructure at London First said:
“After all the mudslinging, this new funding and financing package must signal the final chapter for Crossrail. It’s vital that all efforts now focus on getting it completed.
“London’s firms are bearing a significant chunk of the costs of these overruns and, in return, want to see a clear timetable for opening and better governance, including a stronger business voice on its board.
“Crossrail will have a truly transformative effect on travel across the South East, serving around 200 million people every year and slashing journey times between Canary Wharf and Heathrow.”
