Farrell welcomes HS2 go-ahead

Farrells' vision for Park Royal City at Old Oak Common
  • Comment

Terry Farrell has welcomed the government’s announcement that the HS2 link from London to Birmingham will go ahead

The £32.7 billion railway is expected to stop at Old Oak Common in northwest London where Terry Farrell and Partners has masterplanned a new transport interchange and 10,000 new homes (pictured).

Farrell said: ‘The new interchange we have proposed at Old Oak Common together with our new city quarter at Park Royal City will be London’s largest regeneration project.’

He added: ‘Our vision for Old Oak Common is for a world class “mega hub” that will rival other high speed rail interchanges my practice has designed in Beijing, Guangzhou, Hong Kong and Seoul.’

In March 2010 Farrell revealed a blueprint for the redevelopment of Euston Station which he predicted could become a ‘super-station’ serving the new rail line.

At the time he suggested linking the station to Kings Cross and St Pancras, creating a new hub with development potential ‘at least equal in scale to Canary Wharf.’

Details of the planned HS2 terminal at Euston have yet to emerge however documents revealed by the Department for Transport show the station would need to be significantly expanded westward.  An HS2 spokesperson said architects have yet to be appointed.
