How the Crossrail line will change London?

In December 2019, London will unveil its newest Crossrail line cutting journey times for many commuters. Using public transportation, housing, and geographic datasets, participants are asked to explore the impact of this new line on London.

You are encouraged to think outside the box to come up with models and visualisations that answer questions about the effects of the Crossrail line. For example:

  • How will the Crossrail line affect London’s traffic problems?
  • What is the potential time-savings, if any, of daily commuters?
  • What effect, if any, will this have on housing prices?

Date and Details:

Saturday 2 March, 9:00-20:00
