Crossrail Line: Paddington Station

Volume 468: debated on Thursday 29 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what discussions she has had on the interaction of new Crossrail services and existing commuter rail links running into Paddington. (168662)

The Crossrail services will subsume inner suburban services, and there will be complementary longer distance commuter services. Stops by express trains are not affected. There has been consultation by a variety of means, including: during project development; as part of the hybrid bill process; through the Crossrail Railway Stakeholders’ Forum that I chair and by the Office of Rail Regulation on the application for access rights for Crossrail services contained in an access option.
