Policy Forum for London

Delivering Crossrail and next steps for Crossrail 2

Morning, Wednesday, 8th November 2017

Central London

THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED



This seminar will focus on the future of London transport in the context of the new Elizabeth Line, due to be fully open by 2019, and the plans in development for Crossrail 2, following the joint statement from the Secretary of State for Transport and the Mayor of London backing the project.


Planned sessions will explore the potential impact of the new line and opportunities for the wider network - including for intermodal connectivity, and for regional growth and regeneration prospects for areas that will receive new stations.


Delegates will also discuss the integration of latest technologies and communication services on-board and along the route, as well as the passenger and business priorities for utilisation of improved transport links.


Further discussion will consider the key challenges ahead for Crossrail 2, including remaining issues around route planning, station locations and the further public consultation stages to be cleared before it can be formally approved.
