Crossrail finally approved - nearly ten years after it was originally supposed to have been completed!

They should also build a connection to the North London line and extend the services south-west to Richmond or Hounslow / Feltham, with a new district line interchange station at Acton. This would improve journey times and take pressure off the Windsor line to Waterloo.
