Description: A new high-frequency rail service which will increase rail-based capacity in London by up to 10% and cut journey times across London and the South East.
DCA (RAG) Amber/Red
DCA text: Compared to financial year 19/20-Q2, the Infrastructure Project Authority's Delivery Confidence Assessment rating decreased from Red to Amber/red. This is primarily due to the following factors: The schedule SRO assessment has upgraded to Amber/Red because on 26 March, Crossrail (CRL) achieved a key milestone as it transitioned into the Railways and Other Guided Transport Systems (Safety) Regulations 2006 (ROGS). It marked the point CRL achieved the regulatory safety requirements to operate as a railway as accepted by the Office of Rail and Road. CRL have begun the six-month Trial Running period of intensive operational testing, which involves integrated trials of the railway to prove that it is safe and reliable, and it meets the capacity and performance requirements. CRL will steadily ramp up the numbers of trains running in the tunnels to allow the railway to be operated as close as possible to an operational timetable.
Start date 2008-07-22
End date 2023-05-14

This milestone is forecasted to be delivered in the first half of 2022.
Baseline £873.40m
Forecast £957.40m
Variance 10.00%
Variance text: The budget variance exceeds 5%. Gov forecast is greater than the baseline as it includes £96m of further funding shortfalls, not covered by the £825m additional funding package to the Greater London Authority agreed in December 2020.
Whole Life Cost £18,812.10m
WLCost text: Compared to financial year 19/20-Q2, the projects Baseline Whole Life Cost increased from £17630.90m to £18812.10m. This is primarily due to the following factors: In August 2020, Crossrail (CRL) latest estimates showed that the cost to complete the project could be up to £1.1bn more than the funding committed under the Financing Package agreed in December 2018 On December 1, the Secretary of State announced that additional £825m in borrowing had been made available to the Greater London Authority (GLA). Funding sources were assessed this quarter, resulting in a variance between this year and last year. Main variances are: - £71.9m interest on the Sponsor Funding Account has been included for the first time as this was spent on the project prior to 2020-2021, part of total Sponsor Funding towards Crossrail. - One off new costs baseline and forecast have been amended to reflect the latest Cost of Work Done on the On Network Works (ONW) Programme being delivered by Network Rail (NR) for completeness. This also includes c.£30m in Control Period 6 savings and efficiencies that NR identified going towards ONW.
