The second consultation for Crossrail 2, connecting Haringey and Enfield with south west London, will begin today.

The second round of consultations will consider extending the line for Crossrail 2 from Alexandra Palace to New Southgate, as well as presenting alternative possible routes for the train line through Hackney.

Transport for London says the railway will aid “regeneration and development”, but is concerned about specific route alignments.

Mayor of London Boris Johnson said that Crossrail 2 was a “vital” project for “hordes of commuters”.

He added: “We know there’s huge appetite from passengers and from business to get this project off the ground and as we take the hugely important step in fine-tuning the potential route we’re genuinely keen to hear people’s views.”

The consultation will run for six weeks, until July 25. More information can be found at www.crossrail2.co.uk 

The results of this second consultation will inform a revision to the project safeguarding later in the year. More detailed design will then be needed and an application for construction could be made in 2018.
