Improving London’s Interconnections with the Core Network: Old Oak Common Study
Type of solution: Infrastructure: adding
Node: North Sea-Mediterranean
Stakeholders involved: Transport for London (coordinator)
In order to strengthen London’s connection to the TEN-T network, the CEF action aims to unify in a single infrastructure design option a new interchange facility between the city major railway lines, including the future high speed line 2 HS2, the London Overground’s West (WLL) and North London Lines (NLL) and the Great Western Mainline (GWML).
In practical terms, this means the introduction of an additional Overground station at Old Oak Common area, in the Core Network urban node of London, providing passengers with faster, more convenient connections, as well as providing a vital enabler to the regeneration of this urban node
Furthermore, this additional connection will allow passengers to access a wide range of routes without the need to travel via central London. The Action delivered some of its main outputs, albeit not all, which will allow the development of the next stage of this project.
