Crossrail full steam ahead

Royal Assent marks Parliament's backing of Crossrail and a major boost for UK transport infrastructure and the economy.

We've been working with Crossrail for many years. We know the route backwards. We've shared some of the highs and lows with the corporate affairs team and we know what it means to finally achieve Royal Assent.

Setting new standards

The range of work we've helped with is truly enormous. From public consultation, to visitor centres, corporate literature and exhibitions. Through consistent high standards and genuine respect for Londoners, the Crossrail team has set a new bench mark in communicating major projects to affected parties and other stakeholders.

Historic achievement

So today, 23 July 2008, the day on which Crossrail finally gets the go ahead, we congratulate the team and wish them well for the years ahead.
