The cost of the east–west scheme including rolling stock was estimated at £885 million. A more ambitious proposal named "Superlink" was proposed in 2004, at an estimated cost of £13 billion, including additional infrastructure work outside London: in addition to Crossrail's east– west tunnel, lines would connect towns including Cambridge, Ipswich, Southend-on-Sea, Pitsea, Reading, Basingstoke and Northampton.
Both the Labour and Conservative parties made commitments in their manifestos for the 2010 election to deliver the railway, and the coalition government formed after the election also committed to the project.
The east–west scheme was for a line from Liverpool Street to Paddington/Marylebone with two connections at its western end linking the tunnel to the Great Western Main Line and the Metropolitan line on the Underground.
The City route was shown as a new connection across the City of London linking the Great Northern Route with London Bridge.
I really enjoyed both days and I am very impressed with the whole event.
Speakers, audiences, discussions and your teams were simply brilliant.
The concept of large-diameter tunnels crossing central London to connect Paddington in the west and Liverpool Street in the east was first proposed by railwayman George Dow in The Star newspaper in June 1941.The north–south line proposed routing West Coast Main Line, Thameslink, and Great Northern trains through Euston and King's Cross/St Pancras, then under the West End via Tottenham Court Road, Piccadilly Circus and Victoria towards Crystal Palace and Hounslow.The report also recommended a number of other schemes including a "Thameslink Metro" route enhancement, and the Chelsea–Hackney line.I’m sure we will have no reservations in attending such an event in the future Well done guys, general feeling is that the company has stepped up with this event. Without a doubt the best event so far, quality of speakers were excellent.
Range of topics perfect for the audience and very well hosted. the event was a great success and we found it very useful.
I would also like to comment on your staff; who I found to be pleasant; approachable, helpful and professional.
