London: CrossRail Finally Being Built?

Jump to last reply

During PM's question hour recently David Cameron produly boasted that his government is building CrossRail - a fast rail link slicing from west to east across central London - a scheme that has been on the drawing boards for a few decades now it seems.

And if so it is about time that London joined the ranks of just about every other major European city with such a rapid train (or metro) link - like Paris and their RER trains - German cities with the S-Bahns, Barcelona and Madrid with train lines linking far-removed stations - Brussels and now Amsterdam with the soon to open if not opened super metro slicing from north to south thru town.

Is CrossRail to really become a reality?
