Crossrail appoints legal panel for property acquisition

The acquisition of more than 13,000 land and property interests for Crossrail is one step closer following the appointment of a specialist legal panel.

On the panel are firms Eversheds, Harries Hall, Wragge & Company and Ashurst.

They will advise Crossrail and Transport for London on property acquisition and planning to ensure the acquisition programme meets tough time constraints.

Crossrail legal services director Mark Fell said the construction of Crossrail depended on property acquisition running according to plan.

“Work on Crossrail is now moving full-speed ahead. The acquisition of property under powers obtained through the Crossrail Act is the next major step forward for the project as it prepares for the start of the main construction work in 2010,” he said.

“Such is the scale and extent of Crossrail and its critical importance to London’s transport network that a considerable amount of property and land needs to be acquired within a short space of time.

“Only with all the necessary property and land acquisition can Crossrail’s construction begin.”
