Paying for London’s Crossrail

The City of London (as opposed to wider London) is to contribute £350m to the Crossrail development according to press reports today.

Leaving aside ability to pay, its interesting that only 2 stations will actually lie inside the City boundaries out of 36 in the £16bn scheme. But if you do the maths, looks like the City got a cheap share of the bill.
