Question

I welcome TfL's plans to change the name of Shepherds Bush Station on the Hammersmith & City Line to Shepherds Bush Market. Should not TfL consider a similar change for Edgware Road Station on the Bakerloo Line to Edgware Road Market, to revitalise Church Street market?

London Underground has the opportunity to change the name of Shepherd's Bush, Hammersmith & City line station because the introduction of the new station at Wood Lane means that all maps, signage and publicity incorporating the Hammersmith & City line must be changed. This means that there will be no additional cost arising to LU. Any other station name changes would not be justified given the substantial costs that would be incurred.
