Crossrail acting chief executive Keith Berryman, commenting on the Strategic Rail Authority's strategic plan*, said:

'We welcome the SRA's strategic plan and its vision for a 21st century rail

network.

'The SRA's strategic plan announced today runs from now until 2010. As such,

Crossrail falls outside this period as the earliest possible delivery date

for Crossrail line 1 (east-west) is 2011 - it is also widely accepted that

the Crossrail projects will be funded by the private sector.

'We are pleased that the SRA has demonstrated its continuing commitment to

Crossrail's project definition and development through its allocation of£75m in funding (matched by Transport for London) over the next three years.

'We are also pleased that the SRA has confirmed its support for key projects

which will facilitate the development of Crossrail. In particular

Thameslink 2000, which will provide a north-south cross London service and

where the works at Farringdon will pave the way for Crossrail line 1.'
