London districts are battling to benefit from the proposed Crossrail 2 project.
Transport for London and Network Rail this week launched a consultation on new route options for the planned scheme.
Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea urged its residents to demand a station in the area.
“After so many years of campaigning for Crossrail 2 it would be a disaster if we were to fall at the final hurdle,” said Tim Coleridge, cabinet member for transport.
“West Chelsea is poorly served by public transport. Our streets are congested and our air quality is poor.
“A Crossrail station would make a massive difference so it’s worrying at this late stage to see an option there that bypasses Chelsea altogether. We urge as many residents as possible to get involved in the consultation and demand our station.”
Haringey Council backed the scheme and a proposal for an extension north of Alexandra Palace.
“We’re really pleased to see such broad support for Crossrail 2 in the initial consultation, and we’re convinced that it would be a powerful driver for economic growth in Haringey and across London,” said council Leader Claire Kober.
“We welcome proposals to further extend the route and to bring forward the proposed delivery date, and I’d urge residents to have their say.”
