London Chamber of Commerce and Industry reaction to Crossrail funding announcement

Tuesday 11 December 2018

Colin Stanbridge, Chief Executive of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry, said:

“While it's welcome that additional funding has been found to keep Crossrail on track, let's have clarity on the actual delivery date - to help businesses plan and prepare.

“Businesses will also be concerned if today's additional funding impacts on the Crossrail2 project.  Let's be clear that Crossrail 2 is not a nice to have - but an essential infrastructure project for the future of London.”
