Crossrail 2

EDM number 1185 in 2016-17, proposed by Joan Ryan on 25/04/2017.
Categorised under the topic of Railways.

That this House recognises that the Crossrail 2 project is crucial to the growth and prosperity of London and the rest of the country; notes that Crossrail 2 will provide a £150 billion boost to the national economy, supporting 200,000 new jobs; further notes that Crossrail 2 will relieve intolerable pressure on the tube and rail networks, which otherwise will be chronically overcrowded by the early 2030s; notes that Crossrail 2 is also vital to address the housing crisis in London and the South East and will open up major new areas for development, such as the Upper Lea Valley; further recognises that the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has already shown how London can pay half of the costs; and calls on the Government to give its full support to Crossrail 2 so that it can move ahead without delay.

This motion has been signed by a total of 11 MPs.
