The green light for the long-delayed Crossrail project is finally expected.
The Government is likely to give the go-ahead for the much-anticipated �16 billion cross-London transport scheme.
Crossrail will interchange with 10 Tube lines and will extend beyond the Isle of Dogs to Abbey Wood in its south London spur.
One of the organisations strongly behind the scheme is the business group London First, which believes that Crossrail can seriously reduce the congestion that is currently costing the capital around �1.6 billion a year.
