43rd Annual Paviors’ Lecture - Crossrail: moving London forward, London

About this event

This year's lecturer is the Chairman of Crossrail, a position he was appointed to in 2009. Sir Terry Morgan is, therefore, in a key position to describe this huge and very challenging construction project and its implications for travel in and through London. At a cost of nearly £15bn, it will provide connections between Reading and Heathrow Airport in the west via the West End, the City and Canary Wharf to Stratford and Shenfield in the north east and to Woolwich and Abbey Wood in the south east.

Prior to his present appointment, Sir Terry was Chief Executive of Tube Lines and his earlier experience was with BAE systems and the Rover Group. He is a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering and of the Institution of Electrical Engineers. In addition, he is Chairman of Ricardo plc, London City Airport and Crossrail International. Sir Terry currently serves on the Councils of the University of Birmingham and Heart of the City as well as the Growth Delivery Board for HS2.

The Lecture will provide an overview of Europe's biggest infrastructure project and the challenges that come with constructing 26 miles of tunnels and ten new stations in central London. He will discuss how the new railway will change the way that people travel around the capital, the broader benefits of the Crossrail project and the importance of continued investment in UK infrastructure.

Tea will be served before the lecture and there will be a drinks reception afterwards.

Admission to the lecture is free of charge but those planning to attend, who are not Liverymen, are asked to register. Please use the booking buttons.
