HOUSES near the Crossrail route through London could enjoy a boost in value of up to 25 per cent once the rail link is up and running, research claimed yesterday.

While residents living in the shadow of Crossrail stations must endure years of construction work until the route opens in 2018, they can expect a handsome bump in property values of a quarter compared to current asking prices, a study by GVA commissioned by Crossrail has found.
