Network for the dissemination of knowledge on the management and organisation of large infrastructure projects in Europe
As a follow up to the Network Meeting in
Vienna, specialists from the UK Department for
Transport offered NETLIPSE members a Seminar on Business Cases of
Large Infrastructure Projects and a site visit to the London
Crossrail Project. On the 27th of October 2010 14
delegates from 4 different countries in Europe visited the
Department for Transport in London.
The Crossrail Project is the largest civil engineering project
in the UK and the largest single addition to the London transport
network for over 50 years. Crossrail will connect the City, Canary
Wharf, the West End and Heathrow Airport to commuter areas east and
west of the capital.
It will be a world-class, affordable railway, with high
frequency, convenient and accessible services across the capital.
