To ask His Majesty's Government how many passengers on inter-city services are expected to alight or load at Old Oak Common compared to London Paddington.

Passenger numbers at Old Oak Common will depend on multiple factors including: what HS2 services are running at that point (including whether Euston has opened as the London terminus); the assumed Great Western Main Line calling pattern; and the assumed Elizabeth Line train frequency.

Following the Network North announcement, detailed modelling and analysis is currently being undertaken for a number of different scenarios, with the aim to provide the best overall service provision for passengers across the rail system as a whole.

We expect passengers on inter-city services to have a choice to alight or load at Old Oak Common or Paddington. Detailed modelling is being undertaken, with the support of TfL, to consider various scenarios and understand likely passenger route choices (which are based on a combination of journey time, wait time, train frequency and congestion).
