CROSS ABOUT THE RAIL

  • Comment
ASTRAGAL

So despite some furious lobbying from Astragal, the government has chosen to ignore the call for a monorail in London, and instead opted for Crossrail. This network has been 17 years in the pipeline, and looks set to -nally be given the thumbs-up by Tony Blair.

Crossrail could soon be linking London with such wonders as Slough, Langley and Taplow in the west, and Romford, Brentwood and Shen-eld in the east. Had the government taken on board Astragal's idea of a monorail, however, Londoners could be gliding to and from work high above the buildings, just like The Jetsons.
