Answered By: 
The Mayor

Crossrail Limited is responsible for the delivery of the Crossrail project. Network Rail is a delivery partner, responsible for the delivery, including design and development, of the parts of the Elizabeth line route that are on the existing national rail network to the east and west of central London.

Crossrail Ltd relies on Network Rail to deliver its commitments along the Great Western Main Line and receives regular updates from Network Rail.

Crossrail Ltd, the Department for Transport and Transport for London all receive regular monthly updates on Network Rail's construction schedule.

My team is urgently seeking a meeting with Mark Carne, the chief executive of Network Rail, about this. Valerie Shawcross, my Deputy Mayor for Transport, will be reviewing this matter and seeking assurance from Mark that Network Rail is doing everything it can to get these projects back on track.
