Old Oak Common regeneration is a train crash and City Hall is to blame


The solution to the relocation of the Crossrail depot (to allow it to be redeveloped for high value commercial uses immediately next to the new HS2 Station) lies in using the Channel Gate and Atlas Road sites just the other side of Oak Oak Lane from the existing depot site. These publicly-owned sites would become available after HS2 has finished using the sites for construction logistics associated with the new HS2 line. A new Crossrail depot built on the Channel Gate and Atlas Road sites would be connected by a new rail chord from the GWML onto the Dudding Hill Line. This new depot site would be better placed operationally than the existing depot site once Old Oak Common station is open. It's not too late to properly investigate this open.......
