A masterplan has been revealed for the land around the planned west London Crossrail and HS2 interchange.
Plans for the 46-acre site around Old Oak Common will include 7,000 new homes, 14 bridges and viaducts to connect with surrounding areas, a new high street, new public squares and the transformation of 1.2km of canal frontage. A new London Overground Station at Hythe Road, between Willesden Junction and Shepherd’s Bush, will also be created on the site by constructing a 200m viaduct.
The land called Old Oak Park is owned by Cargiant, which is working with developers London & Regional Properties.
Last year London Mayor Boris Johnson set out a 30-year vision for the transformation of Old Oak Common. He approved a planning strategy for Old Oak and Park Royal, which includes the construction of a major High Speed 2 and Crossrail station. Dubbed a superhub, the station will handle 250,000 passengers per day and is set to open in 2026.
