This paper summarises the work that has already been done to assess, control and reduce the environmental impacts of Crossrail. It explains why we continue to take the view that the Crossrail project is worthy of its support.
The assessment considers the affect of Crossrail on environmental aspects including:
noise and vibration
townscape, landscape, visual amenity, heritage and archaeology
traffic and transport
community and socio-economics
ground movement, otherwise known as ‘settlement’
dust and air quality
water resources, contaminated land and electromagnetic fields
the human rights of those affected by the proposals
