London Crossrail Program
London, United Kingdom
Megaproject – Transportation
Pegasus-Global was appointed as the independent reviewer for the United Kingdom Department for Transport and Her Majesty’s Treasury, relative to the Cross London Rail Link. At that time the project was estimated to cost in excess of £12 billion and to take more than seven years to complete. It is the most complete public works project ever undertaken in the UK. The full scope includes detailed engineering, procurement, construction, and commissioning of train service across London.
Pegasus-Global was engaged to conduct a review of the validity of the estimate; a review of the risk process and risk register developed at that juncture of the project; and to perform a standard of care analysis of various (technical, cost, and schedule) planning and management elements of the project as the independent reviewer.
The Pegasus-Globa analysis confirmed that the project execution team (a joint venture of Cross London Rail Link and London Underground) had acted prudently in the preparation of the specific analyses, used best industry practices and procedures, and the results were reliable.
