There is plenty of news about CrossRail this morning. Firstly, TfL and the Mayor's office have issued a Press Release stating their decisions regarding the construction and operation of the project.
The article outlines the likely benefits and implifications of the scheme.
Secondly, the Superlink Group is unhappy with the agreed route for CrossRail and wants it to start at Reading and end at Stratford.
Finally, the BBC carries the news that fares will have to rise to pay for CrossRail to go ahead.
This news is despite the Mayor's insistence that fare rises would not be needed and that costs would be met from increased passenger numbers.
