Crossrail and London’s rail future on London Assembly’s transport agenda

Rail chiefs are being quizzed today by London Assembly members about progress of Crossrail and other major projects.

Questions are being put to Crossrail’s chairman Terry Morgan by the Assembly’s Transport committee on the impact of construction work on households and businesses, as well as on apprenticeships and how London’s new ‘super tube’ is being linked to existing services.

The debate starting at 10am at City Hall is followed an hour later when Network Rail’s chief planner Paul Harwood and Transport for London’s Geoff Hobbs are being asked about the Mayor’s plans to take over suburban lines and about progress on projects like Thameslink, upgrading stations and issues concerning the North London Line.
