London First is backing Crossrail 2 as the priority major new transport scheme for London and the south east for the coming decade.
Crossrail 2 has the potential to:
develop 200,000 new homes across the region
support 60,000 new jobs across the UK supply-chain, and 200,000 new jobs once completed
increase London’s rail capacity by 10 per cent
London First campaigned hard for Crossrail 1, due to take its first passengers in autumn 2019. Business backing was instrumental in getting the scheme’s go-ahead, and our ambition is to now do the same for Crossrail 2.
