New Crossrail station timeline – will it be delivered ‘on time’?

The Crossrail station timetable has been released to the public. Considering Network Rail’s ‘track’ record, one can be very sceptical whether it will be delivered on time or will the project go ‘off the rails’ again.

According to the timeline, Network Rail expects the whole borough’s Crossrail station portfolio to be all upgraded in less than 17 months.  One can’t see any buffers if the programme overruns.

Is there light at the end of the tunnel or will the upgrade be derailed again?
