Title: Crossrail - further delay
Post by: grahame on November 08, 2019, 12:32:11 pm
I'm sure I'll be merging this topic later on with previous "Crossrail delay" threads ... but noting that I'm the first to post here ... perhaps a delay is not news any more.  A major project on time WOULD be.

The opening of London's Crossrail project will be delayed until 2021 as Europe's biggest infrastructure scheme is set to go another 650m over budget.

The route, to be known as the Elizabeth Line, was originally due to open in December 2018.

Crossrail Ltd chief executive Mark Wild said services would be delayed to allow time for more testing.

Wonder if they will make 2021  :o  :-\  :-[

Pennies compared to HS2, but hey it's a rail scheme so we have come to expect massive delays and overspends.
