Crossrail Regeneration Impacts

Crossrail Regeneration Impacts

Crossrail is the most significant transport investment of the last 50 years. The £18bn line will provide will provide a new east-west rail link for London vastly improving journey times and providing vital additional capacity on London’s congested transport network.

Significant work had been undertaken to make the economic case for Crossrail, but little consideration had been given to the longer term regeneration benefits and how Crossrail would change places in London. Regeneris were commissioned to address this, undertaking detailed statistical and qualitative research to understand how Crossrail will support regeneration at the 28 locations in the capital which will have a station.

The result was a detailed ‘Strategic Prospectus’ looking at regeneration along the line, making recommendations about the places where the public sector was best placed to invest and influence a positive transformation. Regeneris also worked with 5th Studio to create a ‘Crossrail Atlas’ mapping all baseline statistics as well as presenting proposed physical development across the line.
