Lead body for major HS2 and Crossrail development launched

A corporation to lead the regeneration of the West London site of a proposed High Speed 2 (HS2) and Crossrail Station has been formally launched.

The Old Oak and Park Royal Development Corporation (OPDC) has held its first meeting at City Hall in London, chaired by mayor Boris Johnson.

As well as the stations, the regeneration aims to build up to 24,000 homes and create more than 55,000 jobs.

The HS2 and Crossrail station is due to be completed by 2026 and will be the size of Waterloo, handling more than 250,000 passengers per day.

The OPDC is to be given statutory powers relating to infrastructure, regeneration and land acquisitions.
