“RSK Group, as a company involved in everything from planning, environmental impact studies and driver training for the rail industry, are delighted that Crossrail 2 has been given the go ahead.

It will provide jobs for scores of companies throughout the country – particularly in the North West, where RSK are headquartered. Today’s announcement will help retain Britain's first class skills base in railway infrastructure for another generation.
