C2E Campaign - outline business case sent to Government

The C2E campaign, in which TGKP is a partner, is continuing to make the case to Government for support to develop a full business case for this transformational investment.  We are hopeful that Government will have something positive to say about ongoing engagement when it publishes its response to the report by the Thames Estuary 2050 Growth Commission, which publicly backed the C2E concept. 

C2E campaign partners have submitted a letter to Chris Grayling, Secretary of State for Transport and James Brokenshire, Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, highlighting the expectations attaching to the Government's response.  You can read the letter here

The C2E partnership, with backing from local MPs and Council Leaders, has submitted the initial Strategic Outline Business case to Government setting out options for extending Crossrail eastwards from Abbey Wood to connect with Ebbsfleet International.  The partnership is seeking Government's support to develop the full business case which will establish a preferred option, funding and delivery arrangements.
