UK: Transport for London has begun a five-week public consultation on plans to build stations at Hythe Road and Old Oak Common Lane in west London.

‘These two potential new London Overground stations would improve connectivity to High Speed 2 and support the regeneration at Old Oak and Park Royal’, said Alex Williams, TfL’s Director for City Planning, on October 16. ‘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.’

Hythe Road station on the West London Line to Clapham Junction would be situated about 700 m from the HS2 and Elizabeth Line station, within the Old Oak Park development area.

Old Oak Common Lane station on the North London Line to Richmond would be situated about 350 m west of the HS2 and Elizabeth Line station, between Old Oak Common and Midland Terrace.

Plans for the stations have been developed to Network Rail’s GRIP stage 3 by Arcadis Consulting and Fereday Pollard Architects, supported by co-financing from the European Union’s Connecting Europe Facility.
