London mayor Sadiq Khan said he was “disappointed” that the government didn’t back Crossrail 2 in today’s Budget.While the mayor said he was pleased to see progress on devolution, other areas were notably missing from Philip Hammond’s announcements. Rebecca Smith Budget 2017: London Mayor Sadiq Khan “disappointed” there was no Budget backing for Crossrail 2 The lack of mention on Crossrail 2 came as London Assembly members today passed a motion urging the government to crack on with Crossrail 2, saying the capital’s transport network will “grind to a halt” without it.The Assembly said at least 17 Underground stations will buckle under crowding pressures should the government neglect the project. It agreed a unanimous motion asking the Transport secretary to approve Transport for London’s (TfL) strategic outline business case for Crossrail 2 without delay.Caroline Pidgeon, who proposed the motion, said it was “incredibly concerning” that the chancellor could set out his plans for infrastructure “but completely fail to mention the huge need for Crossrail 2”. We have waited over 40 years for Crossrail. A similar wait for Crossrail 2 would be a disaster. Share This Assembly said that Crossrail 2 wouldn’t just boost the capital. Some 40 per cent of the transport benefits and 30 per cent of the new housing would be delivered outside London.  Crossrail 2 is vitally needed to relieve congestion on busy routes into central London and support economic development in and around the capital.It would also create better connections across the South East and the whole country. We cannot afford for the scheme to be delayed or held back.
