London starts consultation for 2 new Overground stations

Transport for London (TfL) has begun a five week consultation on plans for two potential new London Overground stations that would support the regeneration at Old Oak and Park Royal in west London. The potential new Overground stations would improve local rail connections and provide links to the future Elizabeth line and HS2 services.
The Hythe Road station would be situated about 700 metres from the HS2 and Elizabeth line station within one of the largest development sites called Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) area. The Old Oak Common Lane station would be situated about 350 metres to the west of HS2 and Elizabeth line station between Old Oak Common and Midland Terrace. Old Oak and Park Royal represents one of London’s largest Opportunity Areas and one of the UK’s biggest development sites.
Following on from the 2014 consultation, working with Network Rail and the OPDC and co-funded by the European Commission (EC), TfL has undertaken work to develop an initial design for these potential stations at Hythe Road and Old Oak Common Lane.
“These two potential new London Overground stations would improve connectivity to HS2 and support the regeneration at Old Oak and Park Royal. Delivering these would further build on the regeneration benefits of HS2 and the Elizabeth line and would help support new homes, jobs and opportunities for thousands of Londoners,” Alex Williams, TfL’s Director for City Planning, said.
The consultation closes on 17 November. The outcome of this consultation will help determine the next steps for the potential stations. Responses will be considered alongside the overall business case, supplementary feasibility studies, the availability of funding and determining operational requirements.
