Question

Regarding your response to Question 2018/2614 is TfL now actively engaging with the families of the three cyclists and one pedestrian killed by Crossrail Contractors' lorries between 14 November 2010 and 10 February 2016 on a suitable memorial, or is this something that will only be initiated once the project is complete and the Elizabeth line is open?  Can you provide a commitment on the timing and delivery of this promised action?

I have asked Transport for London (TfL) to explore a memorial with the families once the Crossrail project is complete and the Elizabeth line is open. At that point I would want to fully understand the wishes of the families of Maria Karsa, Brian Holt, Ted Wood and Claire Hitier-Abadie before determining whether a memorial would be appropriate.
