The title of this post, is the same as that of this article on Construction News.

This is the introductory paragraph.

Transport for London (TfL) has revealed how the coronavirus pandemic has increased costs and delayed the completion of some of its biggest projects.

Points from the article include.

  • TfL still aim to complete the Northern Line Extension by Autumn 2021, but there has been a 64-day delay caused by the covids.
  • The cost of the Bank station upgrade has risen by £88 million after a nine-week covids delay.
  • The Barking Riverside Extension of the Overground is in serious trouble.

On top of that there are all the problems with Crossrail.
