The environmental statement deposited with the hybrid Crossrail Bill contains details of the analysis that has been undertaken of the Superlink proposals. In summary, we have concluded that Superlink presented significant operational, environmental and consent risks, that it did not appear consistent with planning policies for the South East, and that its costs appeared to be underestimated. We are confident that the scheme in the Crossrail Bill is the best way forward.
