London’s most awaited Crossrail project has been delayed until Autumn 2019.
Simon Wright, Crossrail Chief Executive has said: “The Elizabeth line is one of the most complex and challenging infrastructure projects ever undertaken in the UK and is now in its final stages. We have made huge progress with the delivery of this incredible project but we need further time to complete the testing of the new railway. We are working around the clock with our supply chain and Transport for London to complete and commission the Elizabeth line.”
The £15bn project was expected to open in December 2018 initially.
