What is the realistic timescale for Crossrail 2, given the ongoing delays and problems with Crossrail?

Delays in central government decision making regarding Crossrail 2, and the late delivery and budget overrun of the jointly sponsored Crossrail project have evidently impacted the delivery schedule for Crossrail 2 originally envisaged. Nevertheless, Crossrail 2’s revised Strategic Outline Business Case sets out a plan which is still compatible with my Transport Stategy’s Implementation Plans timescales. We are now awaiting key decisions from the Secretary of State to allow us to progress that work.
