  8. 8. Crossrail Limited<br />Crossrail is a cross-London rail link being developed to serve London and southeast England. The $24.5 billion project will address London’s heavy traffic congestion, providing modern trains to bring an additional 1.5 million people within a 60-minute commute of key financial and leisure centers. The project includes twin-bore 21-kilometer tunnels under central London with interchanges to the existing rail network.<br />Project Coordination<br />Crossrail, London, UK<br />
