CRL and its delivery partners are delivering the project and the route as agreed under the Crossrail Act 2008.

Neither Crossrail Limited (CRL) nor I have recently had any discussions or proposals regarding an extension of Crossrail to Stansted. Crossrail will serve Liverpool Street and from here passengers take can onward connections to Stansted via train services which run from this station.
