Answered By: 
The Mayor

As was laid out in the Heads of Terms, Cross London Rail Links (CLRL) will become an 100% subsidiary of TfL after the necessary governance agreements have been finalised and executed. This is expected to occur before the end of the year. The project will continue to be the joint responsibility of TfL and the Secretary of State for Transport as Sponsors.
