Question

I think there is a team of about 3,500 real experts in tunnelling that could easily be sent around the world or they could decide to go around the world because there are so many projects.  There is a metro being built in Copenhagen at the moment and a whole lot of things, as you know, going on in the Far East, China and so on and indeed in the Middle East.

 Is there yet any specific finalised plan for a route to Crossrail 2?  How near are we to getting it?

In the consultation, as you know, we have had a 95% approval level for the plans.  I think the metro-style route that we are favouring is now pretty well known and I would advise you to get on the website and have a look at that.
