Title: Crossrail 2

Speaker: Steve Davies, Technical Director, Arcadis

Abstract: Crossrail 2 is a proposed new £27bn railway serving London and the wider South East that will give London's transport network the extra capacity it needs and keep the wider South East working and growing. It would connect the National Rail networks in Surrey and Hertfordshire via new tunnels and stations between Wimbledon, Tottenham Hale and New Southgate, linking in with London Underground, London Overground, Crossrail 1, national and international rail services. It will add capacity to the regional rail network, cutting journey times across the South East. It will also support economic regeneration by providing the infrastructure needed to support in the region of 200,000 new homes and 200,000 new jobs.

  • History

  • Hybrid Bill Process
