Lock steps with Chris

leave a comment »

Chris Grayling silly walkerProgress on ‘the’ Transpennine rail route upgrade, whatever that is, and Crossrail 2 are to advance “in lockstep”, according to a gov.uk news story dated 2 March 2018.

To reiterate, that’s “in lockstep”. And definitely not ‘in goosestep’.

Apparently transport secretary Chris Grayling has ‘£3 billion ring-fenced’ for the Transpennine rail route upgrade, and Crossrail 2 is costed at, er, ‘around £30 billion‘ in 2014 prices.

An Independent Affordability Review into Crossrail 2 has been commissioned jointly by the Department for Transport and Transport for London, presumably not to conclude that the project is unaffordable, and in its present form, a waste of public money.
