The project is facing cost or schedule overruns if problems are not addressed, according to infrastructure authority
Crossrail is looking at a cost or schedule overrun if “significant issues” are not addressed, according to the Infrastructure and Projects Authority.
In its 2018 Annual Report, the Infrastructure and Projects Authority (IPA) gave Crossrail an amber delivery confidence assessment - the first time the project has received a rating above a green category in the report’s six year existence.
According to the IPA, an amber rating means “successful delivery appears feasible but significant issues already exist, requiring management attention. These appear resolvable at this stage and, if addressed promptly, should not present a cost/schedule overrun”.
