Call for Crossrail 2 company to be established

London mayor Boris Johnson and Transport for London (TfL) have called for the TfL Board to set up a new company – Crossrail 2 Ltd – to take forward development and delivery of the new rail route.

According to TfL, Crossrail 2 will transform the south east, serving central London through an underground tunnelled section between Wimbledon and Tottenham Hale and New Southgate and connecting with existing National Rail networks in Surrey and Hertfordshire.

Call for Crossrail 2 Ltd

London Mayor Boris Johnson wants to build on the success of Crossrail by creating a company to develop and deliver Crossrail 2

“The contribution of the Crossrail project, shows how successful we can be in taking forward vital infrastructure projects. It makes sense that we now proceed with forming Crossrail 2 Limited for the development phase and get construction underway as soon as possible,” said London’s transport commissioner Mike Brown.

TfL has said that Crossrail 2 Ltd would be a wholly owned subsidiary of TfL tasked with driving forward the development of the project. The board, which will comprise of a number of non-executive directors and senior TfL officers, will bring together senior industry expertise and will steer the project through the development phase to the grant of powers to begin construction.
