Section 28: Key system assets

82.Section 216(1)(b) of the Greater London Authority Act 1999 requires the consent of Transport for London before the creation of any interest in, or rights over, any assets designated as “key system assets”. Such key system assets are designated as such either in, or in respect of, London Underground Limited’s Public Private Partnership agreements.Section 28(1) and (2) disapply section 216(1)(b) of the 1999 Act – and hence disapply the requirement for Transport for London’s consent – where the creation of such interests or rights would facilitate the construction or operation of Crossrail. The construction and operation of Crossrail may interact with, or have an effect on, the London Underground.
