The TfL Board and the Crossrail Board will continue to be separate entities. The CLRL Board, reconstituted on 1 August 2008, comprises four independent Non Executive Directors and three Executive Directors. However, in addition TfL and the Secretary of State in their roles as project sponsors, each retain the right to nominate one further Non Executive Director to the CLRL Board.
