Large Crossrail bonuses are unacceptable

As Transport for London reported the large bonus payments it made to senior Crossrail managers in the last financial year, Caroline Pidgeon responded:

“These generous payments for TfL’s senior staff continue to be out of step with the harsh economic reality facing its passengers.

“Any form of bonus payments for senior staff working on Crossrail are simply unacceptable. When a project is above budget and set to open almost three years late bonus payments for its senior staff should have long been banished.”
