'Post Legislative Assessment Of The Crossrail Act 2008 (Cm. 8676)' examines some of the powers and clauses of the Crossrail Act 2008 and assesses their effectiveness in the early phase of the Crossrail project.
The Crossrail Act 2008 has so far proven to be broadly fit for purpose. However, the project is only five years into the construction phase and there are roughly another five years before the first Crossrail services begin operation, so this is by no means a comprehensive assessment of the legislation which underpins the project.
There remain a number of challenges to overcome before the successful delivery of the Crossrail project is achieved, and this transformational infrastructure delivers the promised benefits to London and the south-east. However, the Department for Transport and Transport for London as joint Sponsors of the project are confident in Crossrail Limited's ability to meet these challenges, and ensure this vital transport link is delivered on time and on budget in accordance with the powers and duties given to them by the Crossrail Act 2008.
There are a number of clauses and powers that have not been assessed and it is recommended that these are revisited as part of any future assessment of the Crossrail Act 2008.
