Stephen Colebourne

Dear Transport for London,

The October 2015 consultation for Crossrail 2 includes a high level total cost of £27bn to £32bn in 2014 prices. This is based on the PwC "Crossrail 2 Funding and Financing Study" which includes a cost breakdown table, where the cost of "Stations" is set at £5,664m.

This FOI request asks for a breakdown of the cost of stations to a per station level.

If TfL and its partners have concerns about releasing such an exact number per station, the following alternative approach would be acceptable: A classification of the cost of each station from 1 to 5 where 1 is low cost and 5 is high cost, and place each station in one of the 5 buckets.

Note that it is expected that the answer will cover all stations affected by Crossrail 2, including surface stations, such as Wimbledon, Raynes Park, New Southgate and Tottenham Hale. It is unclear as to whether the costs associated with these stations falls under the "Stations" line or the "Surface works" line in the PwC report, so please clarify.

This information is needed to respond appropriately to the consultation, so a timely response is requested.

Yours faithfully,

Stephen Colebourne

FOI, Transport for London

Dear Mr Colebourne

 

TfL Ref: 1438-1516

 

Thank you for your email received by us on 30 October 2015 asking for
information about the cost of stations in the Crossrail 2 network

 

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of
the Freedom of Information Act and our information access policy. I can
confirm that we hold some of the information you require. Your request is
as follows:

 

The October 2015 consultation for Crossrail 2 includes a high level total
cost of £27bn to £32bn in 2014 prices. This is based on the PwC "Crossrail
2 Funding and Financing Study" which includes a cost breakdown table,
where the cost of "Stations" is set at £5,664m.

 

This FOI request asks for a breakdown of the cost of stations to a per
station level.

 

If TfL and its partners have concerns about releasing such an exact number
per station, the following alternative approach would be acceptable: A
classification of the cost of each station from 1 to 5 where 1 is low cost
and 5 is high cost, and place each station in one of the 5 buckets.

 

Note that it is expected that the answer will cover all stations affected
by Crossrail 2, including surface stations, such as Wimbledon, Raynes
Park, New Southgate and Tottenham Hale. It is unclear as to whether the
costs associated with these stations falls under the "Stations" line or
the "Surface works" line in the PwC report, so please clarify.

 

Due to commercial sensitives, we are unable to provide a full breakdown of
the cost of every station. However, as you suggest, we can categorise
stations along the core operating section of the proposed scheme into five
different bands, as outlined in the table below:

 

[1]cid:image001.png@01D137FC.520A2D60

 

The overall range is approximately £400m (Band 1) to £1,400m (Band 5) at
2014 prices. This is based on the cost estimate for each station as
consulted upon. It includes the latest available direct construction
costs, land & property costs and indirect costs, but excludes an allowance
for risk.

 

A similar detailed categorisation for stations along the existing Network
Rail sections of Crossrail 2 (including Tottenham Hale) is not readily
available. However, such stations are not expected to exceed Band 1.

 

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable
to access it for any reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

 

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to
appeal as well as information on copyright and what to do if you would
like to re-use any of the information we have disclosed.

 

Yours sincerely
