CITY.A.M. has reported that Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan has said it is “inevitable” that the coronavirus outbreak will further delay the opening of Crossrail. Chief Executive of Crossrail, Mark Wild ordered all non-essential work on the new railway line to stop this week, with some employees told to work from home. The central part of the £18.25bn train line was expected to be open no earlier than summer 2021, more than two years late, however the Mayor has stated that further delays to the project were “inevitable” due to the outbreak of Covid-19.
