Information rounds

A series of public consultation and information rounds were held between October 2003 and April 2007 to explain the proposals in the Crossrail Bill.

Public Consultation Round One

Following an extensive campaign creating awareness about Crossrail, we asked people what they thought of the proposals for Crossrail. This was done through Public Information Centres, meetings, information for schools, a 24/7 telephone helpdesk and a web site. The round took place from 27 October 2003 to 3 December 2003.

Public Consultation Round Two

The nature of the second round of the public engagement programme was determined by the Secretary of State for Transport who announced the scope of the scheme on the 20 July 2004. It took place from 5 August 2004 to 27 October 2004.
