Although the idea was seen as imaginative, only a brief estimate of cost was given: £300 million.
A feasibility study was recommended as a high priority so that the practicability and costs of the scheme could be determined.
Crossrail's central core section will use new east–west twin tunnels under central London, splitting into two branches at either end.
The tunnelled sections will be approximately 22 kilometres (14 mi) in length.
Due to the size and positioning of the new platforms, Farringdon station will also be connected to Barbican station, and Liverpool Street to Moorgate station.
Positioning a new station at Paddington presented structural design challenges due to its positioning just below Eastbourne Terrace and the station's taxi rank, and within 3 m (10 ft) of Isambard Kingdom Brunel's 150 year old mainline station.
Upgrades are being made to stations at Maidenhead, Taplow, Burnham, Slough, Langley, Iver, West Drayton, Hayes & Harlington, Southall, Hanwell, West Ealing, Ealing Broadway and Acton Main Line.It was also suggested that the alignment of the tunnels should be safeguarded while a final decision was taken.The Central London Rail Study of 1989 proposed tunnels linking the existing rail network as the "East–West Crossrail", "City Crossrail", and "North–South Crossrail" schemes.The central tunnels run from a portal just west of Paddington to Whitechapel, with further tunnelling to Stratford and to Canary Wharf.There will be new stations at Paddington, Bond Street, Tottenham Court Road, Farringdon, Liverpool Street and Whitechapel, with interchanges with the London Underground and other National Rail services.
