A FIVE-WEEK consultation has begun on plans for two potential new London Overground stations linking to the Elizabeth line (Crossrail) and High Speed .

The stations would also support the regeneration of Old Oak and Park Royal, seen as one of London’s largest Opportunity Areas, able to provide 25,500 new homes and 65,000 jobs.

At the centre of these plans is a new station at Old Oak on the HS2 route providing connections between London, the Midlands and the North.

Improved local transport, including connections to the London Overground network, would support regeneration and bring up to 250,000 more people and 150,000 additional jobs within an hour’s journey of Old Oak.

Following a 2014 consultation, TfL has drawn up an initial design for potential stations at Hythe Road and Old Oak Common Lane. It is now seeking views on them.

Hythe Road: This potential new station would be about 700 metres from the HS2 and Elizabeth line station within one of the largest development sites called Old Oak Park.

Old Oak Common Lane: This potential new station would be about 350 metres to the west of HS2 and Elizabeth line station between Old Oak Common and Midland Terrace.
