Crossrail’s Dr David Armstrong (head of engineering) and Sam Richards (head of urban integration) discuss the history of the project and provide an overview of the planned scheme.

The programme also examines the economic worth of Crossrail and asks how the team will steer it through the planning departments of 22 local authorities.

Sam Richards also explains why what is built above the new London stations is as important as the stations themselves.

Programme covers:

  • The scope and scale of the £16 billion project
  • The scheme’s economic value to London explained
  • An insight into the ‘urban integration’ of the eight new central London stations
