Crossrail will not cut stations to save money

Crossrail will not lose any of its planned stations or branches in order to save money.

Crossrail has said it will not be cutting lines or stations, but will redesign some stations, make better use of disused rail infrastructure, and will not be designing any new rolling stock.

This is part of Crossrail looking for “maximum value for money”, as Crossrail chairman Terry Morgan put it, and follows doubts being expressed about whether the Abbey Wood and Maidenhead branches might be threatened by the coalition government’s cost-cutting plans, and a commitment from Transport Secretary Philip Hammond to the government delivering the full project.
