Support for Old Oak stations plan

Transport for London has published the results of its consultation that it says shows strong support for two potential new London Overground stations near Old Oak.

The stations would provide additional connections to HS2 and the Elizabeth line and help contribute to the regeneration of Old Oak and Park Royal in west London.

Around 1,000 people responded to the consultation, with 94 per cent supporting the overall plan for two potential new stations at Hythe Road and Old Oak Common.

Where people responded to the questions about individual stations, 86 per cent supported the potential new station at Hythe Road, with 92 per cent supporting the potential new station at Old Oak Common Lane. The provision of a dedicated pedestrian bridge providing a link between Old Oak Common Lane station and Victoria road was also strongly supported.

Alex Williams, TfL’s Director of City Planning, said: “This consultation has shown strong support for these two potential new London Overground stations at Old Oak. We will now consider comments from the consultation and use them to help shape the plans further to ensure we support the regeneration of Old Oak and Park Royal in the most effective way.”
