Former Crossrail Chair Confirms Attendance At Assembly Meeting

Sir Terry Morgan has confirmed his attendance at the London Assembly Transport Committee meeting on 9 January, to give his account of events prior to the Crossrail delay announcement.

On December 21 2018, Chair of Transport for London, Sadiq Khan and Transport for London (TfL) commissioner, Mike Brown MVO, appeared before the Committee after being summonsed to answer questions on the Crossrail delay.

At that meeting both men were adamant that the information they were given through to August 2018 indicated the December 2018 deadline for opening Crossrail would be met.

However, Sir Terry Morgan says he informed the Mayor and TfL in July. The Mayor suggested he must have ‘misremembered’ events.

The Committee has summonsed further documents from TfL in an effort to get the bottom of the issue.

Other guests to be questioned at the Meeting on 9 January include Deputy Mayor for Transport, Heidi Alexander.
