Cliche-fest:

"Rising tension between the government and Transport for London (TfL)
over funding plans for Crossrail 2 is threatening to shunt the £31bn
infrastructure project into the sidings.

Crossrail 2 planners had wanted a decision on it by the end of May to
keep the timeline of the key railway link on track.

In the mayor's transport strategy, unveiled yesterday, Sadiq Khan said
the government "must immediately" give the go-ahead for Crossrail 2."

'Give it the green light' surely??

It took 30 years for CR1 to get from proposals to begin built

and they expect CR2 to get authorisation in weeks

unbelievable

It would be if that's what they were expecting to get in weeks. But they
weren't that stupid.

"The current timeline envisions a hybrid bill being submitted to parliament
by the autumn of 2019 for Royal Assent by 2021/2022, and construction to
commence that year. The rail route would then be ready to open for 2033,
which would also tie in with the second phase of HS2."

In that best-case timeline, when do you think the *decision* would actually
be made?

Right now, they don't even have an agreed route.
