London Chamber welcomes Chris Grayling's support for Crossrail 2


London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) today welcomed the news that Transport Secretary Chris Grayling has confirmed that he is supporting the Crossrail 2 project.

Chief Executive of LCCI, Colin Stanbridge, said: "We very much welcome the support of the Secretary of State for Crossrail 2 and it's vital to note that Crossrail 2 doesn't just benefit London but the whole country both during its construction in terms of procurement and skills and of course afterwards in the resulting infrastructure.

"London's contribution will be more than 50% and we of course stand willing to do all we can to construct an acceptable funding package."
