This document details the representations made in response to the environmental statement (ES) accompanying the Crossrail Bill, a Hybrid Bill that seeks powers to construct and operate the Crossrail railway network.

It provides a guide to the main issues raised by respondents to the ES. It is intended to inform debate at Second Reading about the principle of the Crossrail Bill. The document therefore contains a summary of the main themes covered by the responses to the ES. It is not intended to provide a detailed analysis of representations made (which are provided separately in Annex F).

A complete list of all respondents whose comments were received by the Department for Transport by the deadline set is at Annex A. Annex F to this document contains copies of all responses received.
