Leave a Legacy

Who can contribute?

Anybody who has worked on the Crossrail Programme can contribute to the learning legacy. This could include:

  • Supply chain – all tiers of Contractors and suppliers
  • Framework Consultants
  • Crossrail Integrated Team
  • Sponsors
  • Local Authorities and statutory bodies

Why should you get involved?

You can help the major projects industry by sharing your experience. The learning legacy is as much about the people as the learning. By sharing learning legacy you can become part of the community of experts listed as authors on the learning legacy website and promote your skills and experience.

What can you contribute to the learning legacy?

Consider the positive and negative lessons from the work you have been involved in on Crossrail. Key questions to ask when considering whether you have a learning legacy to share are:

  1. Does it add to the body of knowledge on major projects?  Or
  2. Does it raise the bar in your area, eg, is it innovative or insightful?  Or
  3. Can it be shared for use by by another project? ie “pinched with pride”

How to submit a learning legacy document

Once you have identified the learning legacy that you would like to share, please complete the proposal template and send it to learninglegacy@crossrail.tfl.gov.uk for review by the Crossrail learning legacy team.

Once the approved, the learning legacy team will be in touch to discuss the next steps.

Guidance on the format of the various types of content can be found in the detailed document templates on the Learning Legacy framework page.

When to submit your learning legacy document?

Content is published on the learning legacy website every 6 months. From 2020 this will be in May and November until a final tranche in May 2022.

For each tranche proposals should be submitted 6 months ahead. Papers will need to be completed by 3 months before publication to give time for editing, review and approval.
