TfL recommends Old Oak Overground stations

Posted by

Transport for London has recommended the construction of two Overground stations at Old Oak Common after 83% of 1898 respondents supported the option.

We recommend that two London Overground stations should be built at Old Oak Common, after the public consultation on proposals to build a new London Overground link in the area received strong public support.
Richard de Cani, our Managing Director of Planning, said: ‘This public consultation has demonstrated there is strong public support for new local rail links at Old Oak to allow London Overground services to support the planned High Speed 2 and Crossrail stations due to open in 2026.

‘The creation of two new stations would also significantly improve transport links in this area, helping support local growth by enabling 55,000 new jobs and 24,000 new homes to be created.’

The next stage of work will include the consideration of funding options as part of wider development plans for Old Oak Common. Further public consultation on the scheme is expected to take place next year.
