The Mayor

Transport for London (TfL) has submitted a proposal to the Government showing how London could fund half of Crossrail 2 during construction. As part of this, TfL looked at options to phase construction, which would see the majority of the railway operating in the early to mid-2030s, as originally envisaged. TfL continues to discuss this with the Government.
