The Crossrail 2 team meets regularly with colleagues in Crossrail as well as other major infrastructure projects to learn lessons from their experience. A series of ‘lessons learned’ workshops have allowed the team to discuss issues such as systems integration and handover of stations, as well as the causes of delays during design and construction. The team has been using this information to develop a Crossrail 2 construction schedule that ensures that time allowances reflect experience from Crossrail and other projects. The team is also testing its plans through independent studies and assurance reviews.
At the same time the team continues to review key reports from the National Audit Office and others on the delays to the Elizabeth line and is building any recommendations into its plans.
