Environmental Statement

Crossrail received Royal Assent under the Crossrail Act 2008.  The Act was accompanied by an Environmental Statement (ES).  It comprises a main ES which was submitted alongside the Crossrail Bill in February 2005 and a number of additional volumes which were published between May 2005 and May 2007. 

The Crossrail ES was supported by a series of Specialist Technical Reports.
