A 350 million pound bailout for Crossrail

The Mayor has been given a 350 million pound loan to plug Crossrail's growing financial gap. The extra taxpayers cash is needed to cover the additional costs caused by delays to the Elizabeth Line. The service was due to open before Christmas- but has been pushed back until next Autumn. Sadiq Khan may have secured the bailout, but it has raised more questions and critisism over the handling of it all.
