Crossrail site under review

A Woolwich Crossrail station could be made cheaper by using a lower building, the Commons select committee taking the project through parliament said this week.

A shallower station could cost around £200 million, the committee said. But it voiced concern on government caution in progressing the plans. It stressed that a Woolwich station should stay a key part of Crossrail.
