People currently studying an electrical course may be happy to hear that the government's Crossrail project is still on course to be completed.

Chairman of the transport organisation Terry Morgan stressed that the company will continue to look for the most cost-effective ways to carry out the initiative and welcomes the government's support.

There may be employment opportunities for technicians on electrical courses, since the institution has claimed that at the peak of construction it will be employing up to 14,000 people.

Mr Morgan stated that he hopes the state's decision to back the transport initiative will remove any doubts that the project will be completed "in its entirety".

"Crossrail is looking at engineering-led solutions and reprogramming of the central tunnels construction programme to make substantial savings," he added.

The project has been designed to make travelling around London and the south-east easier, with a rail route linking Heathrow Airport, the City, the West End and Canary Wharf among other destinations.
