    TfL have today published their report on the consultations for the BLE.

    Supposedly it has a BCR in the 3.5 range, which might well justify borrowing against its revenue uplift — there's potential to steal quite a bit of Southeastern's inner traffic.

    There's also the inevitable property developer partnerships, and tying it into the Deep Tube Upgrade project.

    Completion date brought forward by 2 years to 2029, which is ambitious!

    TfL are about to get a credit reference agency downgrade, apparently, which will mean their interest rate payments will increase. We're already waiting to hear how much the current Crossrail overrun will cost them. I suspect 2029 is pie in the sky.
