Prime Minister Boris Johnson spoke of his desire to launch Crossrail 2 having previously suggested it be called the Churchill Line as London Mayor. Speaking at the opening ceremony of the Elizabeth line, he said: “The real thing for us now is to think about Crossrail 2, the old Chelsea-Hackney line.
