18 November 2014: The CMA is considering whether it is or may be the case that the award of the Crossrail concession by TfL’s subsidiary Rail for London Limited to MTR Corporation (Crossrail) Limited, will result in the creation of a relevant merger situation under the merger provisions of the Enterprise Act 2002 and, if so, whether the creation of that situation may be expected to result in a substantial lessening of competition within any market or markets in the United Kingdom for goods or services.
To assist with its assessment, the CMA invites comments on the award from any interested party. These comments should be provided to the contact details below.
