The Government’s and Transport for London’s immediate priority is to see the Crossrail project delivered on time and I am pleased to report that this continues to be the case, with full operations commencing from late 2019.

There are no current plans to extend the Crossrail route and no assessment has been made of the amount or availability of funding for an extension to Basingstoke.
