The new Thameslink station which will connect Brent Cross to Kngs Cross St Pancras to the south and Luton and St Albans to the north has been approved.
It is due to be built by 2022 and will be served by eight trains per hour at peak times.
The approval marks a step forward for Barnet Council’s Brent Cross regeneration plan, which is designed to provide 7,500 new homes and more than 20,000 new jobs.
The station would also link to the West London Orbital – a proposed rail link running between Hendon and Hounslow, providing important orbital connections to Wenbley, Hounslow and Heathrow.
The station had already received outline planning consent. It is funded, and will be delivered early in the regeneration of Brent Cross, providing an important boost to delivery.
