With a population of over 8.6 Million people and expected to exceed 11 Million by 2050 London is amongst the fastest growing metropolis in the world. In preparation of this growth and to maintain it’s status as the World’s Capital the British Government is spending Billion of pounds on infrastructure development. Current projects underway within the capital exceed £50 Billion including the largest construction project in Europe the £15 Billion Crossrail network. The 118 kilometre Crossrail line will dissect London and provide a high speed, modern commuter and suburban passenger service linking Buckinghamshire in the West to Essex in the East. Crossrail will bring 1.5 million more people within a 45 minutes commute of the capital and provide better access to the capital for over 750,000 workers who already commute into London. With the city rapidly growing and development land scarce Crossrail is the ideal solution to link outer suburbs to the capitals key employment districts and on its way is predicted to create £5.5 billion in added value to real estate along its route with commuter belt residential property around Crossrail stations predicted to grow by up to 60%.
