Policy Forum for London

Delivering Crossrail and next steps for Crossrail 2

November 2017

This seminar focused 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 explored 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 also discussed 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 considered 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.

Shortly after every Policy Forum for London seminar, a briefing document is produced. This is distributed to all delegates on the day as well as to our policymaker contacts in government, and to stakeholders more widely.

A seminar publication provides a timely record of proceedings, and acts as a guide to the latest thinking on current policy issues for those unable to be at the event.
