Fraud Prevention and Detection

CRL takes the risk of fraud very seriously, which is why there is a distinct oversight committee responsible for constantly assessing the risk of fraud to our business and encouraging the adoption of up to date and proportionate fraud prevention measures within our business and across the wider supply chain. 

CRL’s fraud statistics are included with Transport for London (TFL) and available on the their  Transparency page.  The Crossrail Audit Committee reports twice a year to the TfL Audit and Assurance committee.

Visit the TfL website for Audit and Assurance Committee minutes and papers.
