holding answer 10 January 2012

Crossrail Ltd is delivering the procurement of Crossrail rolling stock and depot on behalf of Rail for London—the future operator of Crossrail services. The co-sponsors of the project, Transport for London and the Department for Transport, have agreed that any relevant conclusions of the Government's review of public procurement will be taken into account in the tender process. As announced in August 2011, we expect the tender documents to be released early this year.
