The review team will be led by the chief executives of the Sponsor Body and Delivery Authority, Sarah Johnson and David Goldstone, who will be supported by infrastructure and programme management experts drawn from both organisations. The chairs of the Sponsor Body and Delivery Authority, Liz Peace and Mike Brown, will also provide input.
