Answer for Thameslink: Need for Funding

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The provision of funding for the Thameslink project is a matter for the DfT and Network Rail and the allocation of funds during the 2009-2014 spending period. However, TfL has been working closely with the DfT and Network Rail to promote the case for the Thameslink project through its Transport 2025 transport vision and TfL London Rail's Rail Corridor Plan studies.
