TfL’s response to the consultation on two new London Overground stations in the Old Oak Common area stated on the 19th December 2018: ‘Funding remains a significant constraint in delivering these proposals. We are currently seeking to establish a package of funding that could enable the stations to be delivered by 2026 alongside the new HS2 and Elizabeth line station.” Please provide a detailed update as to the progress TfL has made in securing a package of funding to deliver these two proposed stations and the estimated timescale for their delivery.
There is a positive business case for the proposed stations and TfL continues to investigate how funding could be secured to enable their delivery by 2026, with our partners at the OPDC and the local boroughs.
TfL has supported the OPDC’s successful bid for resources from the Housing Infrastructure Fund, which will unlock and accelerate major development activity in Old Oak North and facilitate developer contributions towards a range of proposed transport infrastructure. TfL has also supported OPDC’s review of potential future development capacities in the Old Oak Common Lane and North Acton area, with a view to better understanding how much developer funding might be secured towards transport infrastructure.
