New York Times interviews Ricky Burdett on Crossrail

1 August 2017

Ricky Burdett, Director of LSE Cities at the London School of Economics, was interviewed by Michael Kimmelman for his latest article in the New York Times: London’s New Subway Symbolized the Future. Then Came Brexit. The article explores whether Brexit will signal the end of an ambitious era of trying to bind London together through megaprojects. According to Burdett, “Crossrail is a culmination of years of serious thinking by experts and public officials about what London needs, the imbalance of east and west and how to unite the city.”
