Old Oak meets Waterloo
Mon 1 February 2016, 12:16 pm
Old Oak Common could become one of the best connected railway stations in the country following government proposals to locate HS2, Crossrail and London Overground stops there by 2026.
The new station, linking to Harrow and Wealdstone station, would be the size of Waterloo, handling 250,000 passengers a day and acting as a super hub between London and the rest of the UK.
It would give rise to one of the largest regeneration schemes in the country, transforming the area with up to 9,000 jobs, up to 65,000 new homes, schools, open spaces, shops and leisure facilities.
The Mayor of London, Transport for London and the boroughs of Hammersmith & Fulham, Brent and Ealing are considering issues raised from previous consultations and potential plans for the Old Oak and Park Royal areas.
