Answered By: 
The Mayor

I understand you have recently met Crossrail to discuss this issue.  As you will know, Crossrail is working increasingly closely with outer London local authorities on station design. The project welcomes further input and they are confident that, where stations are being rebuilt, they will meet the high standards that everyone rightly expects.

This close working relationship with the boroughs has already resulted in significant changes at a number of stations and I am now confident that they can resolve the remaining issues working directly with local authorities.
