Just been reading an article where the Crossrail scheme is going to be at least £1bn overspent because they forgot to factor in the cost of buying the trains !

The reply was that the scheme was still good value for money. You can't even make it up better.

I also read that Heathrow's expected sponsorship will not be as much as planned, as following a study, BAA have worked out that they will not really benefit as much as they first thought by the scheme. (Dont worry, as the shortfall will made up from the taxpayer)

I wonder if BAA's statement is true, or whether there's some politics at work here, perhaps BAA giving the Govt a bloody nose over it's failure to make a swift decision re runway 3

crossrail is needed as it delivers a good service between the Thames Valley and Canary wharf for commuters which will restrict the housing and flat density nearer the site to manageable levels
