Statement from Bexley’s Conservative Councillors, following the announcement that the opening of Crossrail is delayed again – this time until 2021 at the earliest.
“This is a shocking announcement. It is already nearly a year since Crossrail was due to open, now there will be another two years – at least – before it opens.
Our Council has worked closely with our colleagues in Greenwich to ensure Abbey Wood is ready for Crossrail.
Local businesses are ready for Crossrail.
People who have moved into homes near the station are ready for Crossrail.
The only person not ready for Crossrail is the Labour Mayor of London.”
