It is time Sadiq Khan ensured Londoners were no longer peddled misleading claims on Crossrail

Caroline Pidgeon AM, Liberal Democrat London Assembly Member, commenting on the announcement of the further delayed opening of Crossrail said:

“We should never forget that the central section of Crossrail was promised to open in December 2018. It is now clear that we’ll be lucky if it opens by the end of 2021.

“This further delay is terrible news, for passengers and London’s businesses. The hole in TfL’s budget is also set to become even bigger.

“Only in June the Chair of Crossrail was publicly claiming to ‘meet or beat’ the opening date of Summer 2021. Clear answers are now needed as to why such claims were made just a few weeks ago. The lack of honesty about the real progress in completing Crossrail has been staggering.

“It is time Sadiq Khan ensured Londoners were no longer peddled misleading claims on Crossrail.”
