Urban infrastructure projects are being implemented throughout the world. In this regard Crossrail, Europe's most expensive urban infrastructure project features as an important case study for similar projects throughout the world to give an impetus to the transport infrastructure universally. Cited to give London's transport network a major boost, Crossrail has been an outcome of some extensive research and planning over the past ten years and brings with it eight new stations, 37 connections, a workforce of 14,000, 7,50,000 extra commuters and a £42 billion benefit for UK monetarily. Crossrail is being wholly managed by Crossrail Limited, a private limited company, registered in England & Wales and a wholly owned subsidiary of Transport for London (TfL).
